FROM THE PULPIT: Daily ways to focus on your relationship with God

Published: Tuesday, February 4, 2014 at 02:03 PM.

This week I am providing you with five daily devotions for your reflection and prayer. Some may fit with circumstances in your life, some may not. Either way, remember to focus your heart and thoughts on God.

Day One

How well do you remember God during the course of your day? It might be easy during quiet times. But what about while you are driving in slow traffic, or while standing in a long check-out line, or dealing with an impatient child?

These are times when God needs to be remembered — not shoved aside. When remembering God, you will be able to recognize the peace he offers in the middle of any situation.

“Evening and morning and at noon I utter my complaint and moan, and he will hear my voice.” — Psalm 55:17

Day Two

I wonder if the warning system God has placed within us — our conscience — is losing its effect on people’s lives. I’m not talking about everyone, but a growing number of people around this country. The growing attitude of, “I don’t care how my actions affect another person, I’m doing or getting whatever I want,” seems to be taking over by leaps and bounds.
