Placing Reminders to Return Our Focus on God — A Quote by Gregory Boyd in “Present Perfect”

“Frank Laubach encourages us to invite others to join us. ‘We need the stimulus of believers who pursue what we pursue, the presence of God,’ he writes. Thus, I encourage you to ask a friend, or a group of friends, to embark on this discipline with you… It helps to embed little reminders in your environment that will bring you back to an awareness of God in the present moment. Try posting sticky notes in places that you’ll see throughout the day. (You’ll want to change these frequently so they don’t just become ‘wallpaper’.) Try associating the practice of God’s presence with a piece of jewelry that you wear or a stone or cross that you carry in your pocket… If you work at a computer, set up an automatic reminder in your calendar each hour or half hour… Imagine all of the ways you could slip little reminders into the nooks and crannies of your life.”
