learning to live in God

i do think we can learn to live in God...if we understand what living in God is all about.

it is not about:
our performance.
meeting our expectations.
meeting other's expectations.
doing what we are supposed to do.
not doing what we aren't supposed to do.
going to church on sun morning (and sat night).
my (or any one else's) laundry list of religious things.

it is about:

Trusting God.
Believing His Promises.
Growing in relationship with Him.

more a little later.

how does "life get in the way"?

i know any thing i say will sound trite and condescending. but you must: 1. trust God. 2. believe His promises. 3. grow with and in Him. i know things seem like they get in the way...but they don't have to. learning to live in God is learning to experience His presence in everyday things...in the beauty of nature...in the beauty of children...in the beauty of music (even non xian music!)... in the beauty of any and every thing. i think one of the problems is it's so easy, that it seems like it cannot be true.
