When we focus on God we are at peace. Self-centeredness diverts our attention. Our life is an opportunity to get closer to God, to know him. Our search for the Divine is an inner drive of our Spirit; seeking closeness to God is an intimacy that nourishes our heart and soul. Jesus invites us to open our heart to him, with humility and gratitude.
Deuteronomy 4:29 Yet there too you shall seek the Lord, your God; ; and you shall indeed find him when you search after him with whole your heart and your whole soul.
Deuteronomy 30:2 Return to the Lord, your God, and heed his voice with all your heart and all your soul.
1 Chronicles 22:19 Therefore, devote your hearts and souls to seeking the Lord your God.
Colossian 3:15 Christ’s peace must reign in your hearts, since as members of one body you have been called to that peace. Dedicate yourselves to thankfulness.
James 4:8 Draw close to God and God will draw close to you.
