Is your relationship with God feeling fragile, lifeless, or distant?

I’ve been there and I’m a pastor.

Things changed for me and they can change for you as well. You can have a vibrant, meaningful relationship with God through simple, timeless Christian practices.

Seeking God doesn’t have to be complicated or difficult. Anyone can do this. You can do this. It would be my honor and joy to help you with what’s helped me.

Here’s a simple practice you can start right now.

An important way to hear from God is to stop everything and just listen. Find a quiet place with as few distractions as possible. Sit in a chair where you can put both feet flat on the floor with your palms open and up on your lap. You’re now ready to receive. Simply say, “God, I’m listening.” Return to this phrase when your mind won’t rest. Give yourself loads of grace and stick with it- it takes time to learn to calm our busy thoughts. This ancient Christian practice is essential in our noisy, hurried world. Start with 5 minutes and work up to 20 minutes.
