Having that peaceful connection with God...
Having that peaceful connection with God is always at the core of my heart. I need it every day of my life. However, sometimes it's difficult to have or even retain. With the constant distractions of social media, streaming app, and the day to day routine. It's become more difficult to achieve inner peace with God. Fear not, I will share with you some of the ways I seek inner peace with God:
Whether it's on the beach, boardwalk, or in the park. I always make it a priority to connect with God. In most cases, I stay away from social media. I'll keep my phone on silent. Cutting off the distractions allows for a moment of meditation and reflection. At least 20-30 minutes.
Taking Photos of God's craftsmanship.
I always carry a camera, usually my Canon Powershot ELPH 190, if not my cell phone will do. I focus on sunset, sunrise photographs. As well as Nature particular in the springtime. Like butterflies up close (Marco mode) and flowers blooming. However, whatever catches you, take a shot.
Meditate on God's goodness with music.
Music and helps find inner peace, but it can also be distracting. I listen to a broad range of music, both Spanish and English. All Christ-centered. So, finding the right kind of music is crucial. I can't listen to something upbeat and fast, while I'm trying to connect with God. In most cases, I listen to praise and worship music or instrumental music.

Reading the Bible
I always carry my Bible with me and a journal. If not I always have the Bible app. When I'm out & about and the weather is beautiful, I find a quiet place and read my Bible or read a book, as long as it draws me closer to God. Like this morning I went for a walk, sat on the rocks along the beach and began reading. I zoned out everyone and got lost in His word. and it was a wonderful and peaceful moment. Maybe you can join me next time!
