How can I feel inspired all day long?

Q: I pray every morning and usually feel inspired, but then I get into the day, and between school, sports, and everything else, I feel like I leave the inspiration behind completely. How can I carry my prayers through the whole day?

A: This is a great question and one I’ve wrestled with. It might seem like our world is split into two parts: one that is spiritual and inspired, and the other, well, that would be our daily routine, which may not exactly feel uplifting or keep us focused on God.

But here’s something that has really helped me and has made life seem less disjointed. One of the great things about Christian Science is that it explains that all good is evidence of God’s presence, because God is good. A hymn in the Christian Science Hymnal puts it this way: “All good, where’er it may be found, / Its source doth find in Thee” (John Ryland, adapt., No. 224).
