First Thessalonians 5:16-18 tells us, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
Life often gets in the way of our desire to connect with Jesus as our source of contentment and joy. We get busy raising children, investing in our marriages, and building our careers. We get distracted by technology and lost in tough circumstances. Life overwhelms us, and we disconnect from God.
Pastor and author John Burke has disciplined himself to stay connected with God moment by moment. His desire to help his church experience God that way motivated him to develop the “60-60 Experiment,” a challenge that inspires Christians to stay in continuous conversation with God for 60 days.
Pastor Burke describes the 60-60 Experiment’s potential for transformation as a “soul revolution” where we learn to experience moment-by-moment connection to God that fulfills our deepest longings and transforms us into life-giving people.
John Burke is with us on our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Staying Connected to God: a 60-Day Challenge” to give us a clear picture of how to do life with God in a way that empowers you to trust Him with your strongest and deepest desires.
