Have you lived out this scene? You pour a cup of coffee. You sit down to read the Bible. You pause to pray. And then you realize – before even cracking open your Bible – your mind is pulled in a million different directions.
Why does this happen? After all, you want to be fully present. You want to focus. You want to spend time with God.
And yet the distractions come. More accurately – the distractions bombard!
It seems like every time a teach a workshop on reading and enjoying the Bible this topic shows up. I get questions about it. I receive emails about it. I see comments on Facebook about it.
We live in a distracted – and distracting – culture.
Hear this clearly: You can focus. You can reduce distractions. You can read, pray, and simply be with God without having your mind wander every 30 seconds.
However, it’s not easy. It takes practice. And it takes intentionality.
I have written a longer post – and recorded a podcast episode for you listeners out there – that dives into greater detail on the 6 Tips for a Distraction-Free Quiet Time. You can read the post or listen to the podcast here (or search “Keith Ferrin” on iTunes).
Today I want to give you – for free – the eBook version.
Use the button above (or click the picture of the eBook cover at the top of this post), enter your email address, and I’ll send it to you.
