I want you to live close to Me, open to Me—aware of, attentive to, trusting, and thanking Me. I am always near you, so open yourself fully—heart, mind, and spirit—to My living Presence. Feel free to ask the Holy Spirit to help you in this endeavor.
Seek to stay aware of Me as you follow your path through this day. There is never a moment when I am not fully aware of you. Attentiveness involves being alert, listening carefully, and observing closely. I encourage you to be attentive not only to Me but to the people I bring into your life. Listening to others with full, prayerful attention blesses both them and you.
“I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.”—Revelation 1:18
My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.
~ James 1:19
The father instantly cried out, “I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!”
~ Mark 9:24 [NLT]
The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.
~ Psalm 28:7
