I have a thought that I’d like to share with you about our daily faith walk. I have found it helpful to keep connected to God through focused thought. Even when I cannot sit and read scripture, I can almost always think about spiritual topics. I ask myself if whatever I’m experiencing at the time can relate to my Christian faith and, if it does, how can it illuminate principles of better living.

It is not easy to cultivate spiritual awareness because of the many distractions vying for my attention. Despite the challenges, I find it rewarding to push against the resistance. Struggling to let my faith breathe helps fill my heart and mind with the uplifting presence of God’s Spirit. No matter what I’m doing, I can enjoy at least a momentary, inner journey that reveals how God is with me.
