Out Of Site..

...out of mind.

It's completely true that if you don't see something you often put it out of your mind, at least it is in my case. Of course my son and husband are a different story, but I'm not talking about them. So I'm sure you're wondering what I'm talking about? Let me tell you :P

I'm talking about Spiritual things. God. I'm sure I'm not the only person who has this problem, but I often feel like I am.
(By the way this is not the problem I was having from my previous post.)

God you can't see Him and you can't see Heaven. So I find that sometimes I forget that it all really does exist.

You go through life and you have a routine. Sure we see all the things that God created, but it's all so normal. We see trees, the sky, flowers, people, etc everyday so it's easy to forget who created them. If someone was to ask me "Who created everything?" without ever even thinking I would say God. It's not like I don't know who created it I just don't go past every sinlge person, tree, flower, etc and say (or think) God created that! I probably should just to keep myself reminded...

So how do you, with your busy lives and hectic schedules, remind yourself daily about God, Heaven, eternity, etc.? Good question.

Really the answer is simple. We are supposed to pray without ceasing (still trying to understand how that is possible), read our Bible (daily bread), and fast. Now two of those are supposed to be daily (praying and reading our Bible, for those of you who may not know) To my knowledge there isn't anywhere in the Bible that says how often you're supposed to fast, but I know that it should be more than most people do. (I mean seriously who likes to fast?) If we were to do all these things like we are supposed to then we would remember God.

So there is your (and my) simple solution.

Get to reading and praying :P

When I was young I didn't realize how much that I didn't think about God. Through the years, I have learned to see Him in the little things, a bird flying by, the wind on my face. It is true, the more you pray and read His word, the more you think about Him. You are on the right track!! I'm proud of you!!!,!
