--- a posted Comment to someone, on a blogger blog, where she writes about the need to have the thoughts of Jesus always there, all day long, as she wends her way throughout her day!
your paragraph reminds me of what some minister said about the Light: which is brighter, the lighthouse on the ocean point, two miles away, or that lit match that is about three inches away from your eyes?!
That match *looks* the brightest, as it is near you.
This is why Focusing on Jesus is so good as the Noise of the world will drown out the inner voice of Spirit, even though the Strength of Christ Spirit and the Holy Ghost is SO much more the Real: the world is right in one's face!!
