Some Ideas For Focusing On Jesus

I want to encourage people who wish they had more of a devotional life with some different ideas about how to increase their focus on Christ.

One thing I have done is to get the Bible on CD. It is amazing what new insights I have when I listen to things I have read for years. A while ago someone pointed out to me that in Biblical times the people got their information by listening to it being read in the synagogue, mostly because the majority didn't read.

I often stick a worship CD in the car, so when I am driving I hear different snippets. I love worhship that has alot of scripture in it. Singers John G. Elliot and Twila Paris are good examples of this.

Sometimes I really struggle to pray verbally, so I type my prayers on my computer. If I don't have it with me, I write them the old-fashioned way - on paper. If you want an easy prayer journal to look back through you can create a private blog.

I really like Beth Moore's Believing God study. You can do it online at lifeway.com\bg.

Right now Beth Moore is doing a serious study through Romans. You can go to www.lproof.org and click on the study at oneplace.org.

The key is to find something that works for you.
