God Reminder

If you’re like me, there are a lot of days where you find yourself barely thinking about God throughout the day.  We want to, but often get ‘caught up’ in whatever is in front of us.

In an effort to keep his focus on the Lord, family physician Joe Winston uses a watch that chimes on the hour to remind him to remember the Lord.  When the chime goes off, he’s often with a patient, so it’s a great way to both re-center and (if he feels led) introduce spiritual ideas.

For a modern twist on this idea, you can find apps for your smartphone that do the same thing.  I’m trying Chime Time for my Android phone.  This free app’s standard clock chimes on the hour and half-hour, and you can purchase other clocks/chime frequencies for just $1.50.  We’ll see how it goes.

If you have a favorite app or tip for remembering God throughout the day, share it in the comments section.
