How to make your day biblical!
Associate all your daily activities with biblical verses..
The bible has for you a verse for each daily activity ..
That practice helps bring the bible present all day long,
and keep the mind confusion free and bible focused..
Let us tour and seek:
When you awake, let your first words be :
Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.
When you wash your face say:
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
When you wash your hair say:
Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
And this is for your ears:
Make me hear joy and gladness,
That the bones You have broken may rejoice.
Even When you dry:
Hide Your face from my sins,
And blot out all my iniquities.
When you put off your bed clothes:
that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man
which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts,
And as you put on your attire:
and that you put on the new man which was created according to God,
in true righteousness and holiness.
On your going out:
The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore
At bed time:
I will lie down and sleep in peace,
for you alone, O LORD ,
make me dwell in safety.
On reclining your head on the pillow:
His left arm is under my head,
and His right arm embraces me.

For church days, the following verses fit:
On weekends and holidays,
when you go to spend the day in the church:
For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand.
Before the church gate:
How awesome is this place!
This is none other than the house of God;
this is the gate of heaven.
When you enter:
This is the gate of the LORD,
Through which the righteous shall enter.
On your way to worship before the altar:
But as for me, I will come into Your house
in the multitude of Your mercy; In fear of You
I will worship toward Your holy temple
Even for leaving the church there is a verse:
I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.
He will come in and go out, and find pasture.
However, if the church is close,
or your stand out for any reason, you can say:
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
Than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
And so on ...
Those verse should be engraved on your shaving mirror,
bedroodm's closet's door, and wherever appropriate to remind you
of the right verse in the right time till you get them all fixed in
your mind and grow that good custom.
The more you read bible, the more you pick more suitable verses
that suit your daily activities, the more your day-verse vocabulary grows ...
To round off, I am glad to draw attention that this soothing idea of a biblical day is not innovated! How joyous it was when I paid attention to the fact that this simple practice is deeply rooted in the biblical teaching (Deu6:6-9) and the Lord's wisdom of using parables.
