A Constant Awareness of God (Part 3 of a 5 part series on Life Pursuits in Leadership)

NAB VP of Leadership Formation
We have considered the foundational importance of humility and the pursuit of inward rightness as necessary, preliminary ingredients in experiencing the transforming reality of an authentic life with God. Next, we must, with great intentionality and diligence, learn to live with a constant awareness of God. This means that we must ask, expect, and be ready to receive God’s very real presence and activity in the mundane details of our lives.
There have been many phrases used to describe this kind of a “God-attentive life.” The two most popular are “unceasing prayer” and "practicing the presence of God.”
