Years of wants and hopes regarding matters of faith

For decades, I have wanted to learn how to pray without ceasing, always give thanks, rejoice always, and meditate on the Word day and night.

I have wanted to seek Him, draw closer, and know Him and the Bible.

I have wanted to do so.many things spiritually.

And now see how fully and purposely living with God in this moment, and listening most of the time (trying to), is the key. The rest will happen, provided I do this.

And if make sure I am doing at least one of the things from that first paragraph in each and every moment. This takes mindfulness, which I am slowly trying to learn in each moment, one moment at a time. Living fully with God in the now.
