“Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” (Mt 6:33)
Keeping God in our life and focusing on Him is very hard nowadays but I would like to give you a tip. Prior to coming here to the USA I went for a retreat in India, in which the preacher taught us a formula that needs to be recited very often and teach the mind and heart to learn all the time which bring a sense of God in our life. It goes like this:
GOD IS GOOD…..ALL THE TIME, ALL THE TIME …..GOD IS GOOD.
This worked in many people’s lives and they professed their testimony. Having God in our life is a blessing, and keeping Him as a center of our life is the BEST, thereby He becomes our navigator and protector. However our reasoning can change our perspective of God and His plan, even we question ourselves forgetting the beauty of faith we professed in God our Savior. Reasoning and Faith cannot go together, Reason will always pull you back from your goal but Faith always leads you to better cause and success. Bede Griffins once told “God had brought me to my knees and made me acknowledge my own nothingness, out of that knowledge I had been reborn. I was no longer the center of my life and therefore I could see God in everything.” Believe me God has purpose for your pain, a reason for your struggles and a reward for your faithfulness. So don’t be anxious about anything simply love God and rest. He will take care, for GOD IS GOOD……ALL THE TIME, ALL THE TIME ….GOD IS GOOD
