Pay attention to what you’re paying attention to
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God (Col 3v1).
Confession: I have been in the trough of a wave spiritually recently. My faith hasn’t waivered, but my connection with Jesus has. I hadn’t really noticed until it got to the end a day and my phone pinged up a Bible verse, I ignored it and swiped to something else instead.
This seemingly tiny motion is representative of an old habit I’ve slid back into – choosing to make time for the meaningless things instead of making time for Jesus.
I have often found myself envious of those who seem to be able to talk to Jesus organically and naturally throughout the day. There have been periods of my life when I have been able to do that, but only when I have made time, or silence, to seek God first.
So this week I challenge you to pay attention to what you’re paying attention to. Pray. Read. Share stories and food. Dig up your joy and share it.
