Being aware of God

When I read the book, The Practice of the Presence of God, by Brother Lawrence, my life  changed. Why? My awareness of the world around me changed.

The physical world around me didn’t change. My awareness of the world changed, because I became aware of God in the world around me.

I saw beauty in people. I saw that people would become more aware of God as I prayed for them. I found that I was becoming more aware of God in the day to day routine because I was praying to Him.

These clips from Bill Johnson (from Bethel Church in Redding California) offer an awesome, brief, thought-provoking teaching about practicing the presence of God.

About morgangascho

I grew up in Iowa, USA (famous for growing corn). I'm contemplative, I love writing, and blogging has become a hobby. Writing worship music is a way to engage in sweet conversation with the Divine Creator of the Universe, Jesus. He is my life. I am hidden in Him and I pray that someday I will know what that means. Until then, I'm seeking His glory, waiting for the day when it will all be revealed to me.
