Before you leave for work, drop the kids off at school, meet your friend for coffee, head to the doctor, wash the clothes and clean the house, begin caring for the family at home, or begin any task you have on your calendar, take a moment and be reminded.
Think about how God is… thinking about you.
Mull over this truth: You’re significant to the Creator of the entire universe.
