G is for God

Sections of this topic

    Got your attention, huh? I thought God might. I can’t really tackle God as case study in this blog entry, but thought I would try to add some insight. Actually what I plan to do is share some thoughts around how to tap into our relationship with God to increase spirituality in our lives.

    A book called God is a Salesman by Mark Stevens, a Business Week bestselling author, caught my attention. With “Lead by Faith: Pray for God’s Guidance” as the number one value for my business, I thought this book might help me. The author shares how he put his insights into this book not from a particular religious perspective, but from having a personal relationship or communing with God. He said, “If we understand how and why we have faith in God, we can use this power to create and lead more successful lives.”

    I love the concept of learning about our spirituality from “The Master.” Here are a few of his components from the book that really struck me in how we can follow the insights and guidance that God gives us so we can deeper and connect more meaningfully to what matters most to us!!

    God’s presence

    Mindfulness, living in the moment and other words describe the importance of being present. Being in God’s presence allows us to have a deeper connection and more meaningful life. We feel rested, peaceful and calm. The more I experience His presence, the more I want to be there.

    God’s loyalty

    The great thing about God’s loyalty is that it’s eternal! No matter what mistakes we make today, God is willing to forgive those whose hearts are sorry and focused on Him. Knowing that I have this loyalty with God enables me to reach further and take risks that I might otherwise not take.

    God’s listening

    I read in another book the other day that we tend to only recall 50% of something we just listened to. Not God. He is the best listener. He listens to our prayers, our pleas, and our problems. He hears our shouts of joy and thanksgiving. He also listens intently to the deepest desires of our hearts, those dreams or fears we’ve never shared. He is never distracted. He never interrupts. He advises us and gives guidance if we choose to listen to him.

    God’s attraction

    Stevens shares how God is a magnet because people all over the world turn to Him and search Him out. Are you a magnet? When we are living authentic and spiritual lives, we too will become magnets and we attract people, encouraging them to live out their highest selves.
