Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. Hebrews 12:1-2 (NIV)
The light of Christ’s glory is shining on you, His beloved. Look up to Him with worship in your heart. Let the radiance of His love fall upon you and soak into the depths of your being. Savor these moments alone with Him. Jesus is using them to make you more like Him. The more you keep your gaze on Him, in quiet times and busy times, the better you can reflect His Glory to other people.
Staying conscious of Jesus when you’re busy can be quite a challenge. But He has created you with an amazing mind that can function on more than one “track.” Practicing His Presence involved dedicating one track to your relationship with Him. This practice has many benefits: When you are aware that He is with you, you’re less likely to do or say something that’s displeasing to Him. When you’re struggling with difficult circumstances or painful feelings, awareness of His Presence offers courage and comfort. He can use everything in your life for good, transforming you into His likeness with ever-increasing Glory.
