Linked In Prayer – Gifts of prayer
For where your treasure is, there your heart shall be also. Luke 12:34
I appreciate this passage because it reminds me that where I focus my time, my thoughts, my actions, shows what is in my heart.
That’s why I value setting aside daily time to pray.
+ It helps us put God’s love in the center of our life.
+ It can focus our attention on the gifts we receive from God and our gratitude.
+ It can increase our receptiveness of receiving God’s love for us and presence with us.
+ It can remind us that we are forgiven and can start anew this moment.
What reminds you of God’s love and presence within you throughout your day? Here are some suggestions: In prayer, while reading scripture or inspirational writing, when listening to another, when I notice my breath, when I hear joyful laughter, seeing something in nature – a flower, a tree, a sunset, a sunrise.
Let me know what reminds you of God’s presence throughout the day? When we share this wisdom with each other we learn and grow. Please feel free to email me your God reminders at: Laurieberickson@msn.com.
For where your treasure is, there your heart shall be also. Be like those who are waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet, so that they may open the door for him as soon as he comes and knocks. Luke 12:34-36
