Simple But Powerful: Practicing God’s Presence
An uncomplicated yet powerful spiritual exercise is to merely practice the presence of God throughout our day:
Throughout the day, we can use short little “breath prayers” to surrender situations beyond our control, whether it be bad news at the dentist (“Into Thy hands” is my fave BP in the dentist’s chair) or a person we can’t understand or relate to (“Show me this person’s heart - it’s in there somewhere!”).
I used to find myself easily bored but that has changed with years of practicing God’s presence. There’s always something to converse with God about:
Practicing the presence of God makes the Great Commandment easier:
I’ve explored this idea more deeply in the second DVD, Practicing the Presence of God, in a new DVD series, Spiritual Formation as Abiding. This second DVD is now available along with a full-color participants guide with Powerpoint slides for you to use on your own or to duplicate and use with a group. You can buy it on disk or by downloading it. This is a companion to The Transformed Life: How Do People Change?
My goal with this DVD series is to do what I can to help move people forward in their union with God and transformation into Christlikeness.
Grace and peace,
