How I Stay Focused
I begin most days slow.
I read Scripture. I'm now reading through the Gospel of Luke. And through Proverbs. I don't read fast. I stop a lot. I pause, and ponder.
I study Scripture, and I meditate on Scripture.
Because I have spent decades making time for this, I have time for this. Discipline carves out streams and rivers in the heart.
I just watched, again, the Eugene Peterson video. I have twenty minutes to invest in my spiritual connection with God.
Today this video, plus Scripture, with a dash of Dallas Willard, has me focused on what my life is really about.
My two books are:
Praying: Reflections on 40 Years of Solitary Conversations with God
Leading the Presence-Driven Church
I'm currently writing:
How God Changes the Human Heart
Technology and Spiritual Formation
Linda and I then intend to write our book on Relationships.
