Do you remember the 60/60 challenge?  It's HERE if not.  I am now over two weeks into the challenge.  My cell phone gives a Heavenly chime EVERY hour on the hour from 7 AM to 10 PM EVERY day.  When others look at me when the chime is ringing, I just say--
"It's God Calling!"

It has been VERY eye-opening to what I spend my day doing and thinking about--especially.  Turns out--I am NOT always God minded!  It chimes---I sigh--I reflect and I try to do better!  There are hours that I am victorious in my quest to be in continual communication--permanently linked with Him.  Those hours are less stress filled--more joyful--and I am better content with where I am.  You would think I would learn.

The hours I spend writing these blogs--are filled with communication between us---He is pouring in and I am pouring out.  The truth is that I have to get out there and live life in the world though to have inspiration to write.  There is not much to tell staring at these walls --and it becomes very narcissistic if I am not careful.

SO I have learned---the challenge is not to be in communication while here writing--the challenge is when I am out in the world.  While I am walking, talking, grocery shopping, baby-sitting, going to meetings--how do I keep Him at the center of my thoughts?  When I am driving in the city traffic, and some are not very good drivers in my path, how do I keep Him in the center of my thoughts?  When I am walking through beautiful neighborhoods of lovely homes, how do I keep Him in the center?  When I see others out with friends or spouses and I am alone, how do I keep Him in the center of my thoughts?

Perhaps I have ADHD or some other alphabet soup--for I am struggling with keeping my mind where it should be 24/7.  I suppose it is like running--you just keep running--knowing there are going to be days that it is a struggle---you just keep putting one foot in front of the other and in forward motion.  As for now--every 60 minutes---He calls me back into His presence---and I keep trying!  Where is your mind all day-everyday?

"I love those who love me, and those that seek me diligently will find me."
Proverbs 8:17
