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.
