“If a man does not say with his heart, ‘only God and I exist in this world,’ he finds no peace,” said Abba Alonios.”
When it comes right down to it, a person’s relationship with God must take precedence over everything else. It is the beginning, middle, and end. There are all sorts of things to distract us from God. Steadfastly put God first. Yes, it’s hard, sometimes it is almost impossible to even remember God exists. This is why we have Rules of Life, disciplined prayer, and worship times. We structure our lives around God. Instead of squeezing God in around everything else.
