“We pass from thinking of God as part of our life to the realization that we are part of his life.”
From my morning readings in “Prayer – Finding the Heart’s True Home”, by Richard J. Foster.
At some point in our growth in prayer, focus starts changing. I have not experienced this as being a simple switch – one moment focussed on self, the next focussed on God for the rest of my life. Instead, it’s been a height I sometimes rise to.
