Psalm 63:6 NLT
I lie awake thinking of You, meditating on You through the night.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 NIV
4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
O God, you are my God;
I earnestly search for You.
My soul thirsts for You;
my whole body longs for You
Matthew 6:33 NIV
33 But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
“You will not learn to consistently practice God’s presence overnight. Like any good habit, its formation requires persistence and patience.
But remember, neither skill nor knowledge is necessary for us to come to God. We just need a heart determined to turn only to Him, to beat only for Him, and to love only Him.”
~ Brother Lawrence
Acts 3:19-20 (ESV)
19 Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out, 20 that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.
