Making God our focus

At HourEleven Vas Avramidis writes about Psalm 1 and making God our focus:
Have you found your spiritual life lacking? Are you like a boat tossed around by the waves of the ocean? Then make God the center of your focus. . . . we need to find ways to reintroduce God into the fabric of our lives. We need to spend more time with God throughout the day, not just the occasional morning and evening prayer time.
Vas mentions Deuteronomy 6, where the people of Israel urged to keep the Word of God against their bodies. Vas offers ways for Christians to leave ourselves reminders to speak to God throughout the day. Yet true devotion, he notes, goes beyond hurried words in spare moments:
God does not want hastily said empty prayers. Pray to Him with devotion and sincerity. Ask God to help you in this endeavor. In this way we can weave God into our daily lives and have Him always in our hearts.

Thanks, John. Glad to see this post helped you a little during the sad, sad ordeal of Terri Schiavo. May God have mercy on this nation.
