His Attention

Getting someone’s attention

can be difficult at times


Just to have them look you in the eye

and to be heard


is rare


But you have God’s attention


He always sees you

and always hears you


His love for you is eternal

His attention faithful


God is not distracted

when you talk to Him


He is not preoccupied

with items more important


So if you have God’s attention

why not engage with Him?


Or is the problem

that God does not have

your attention?


-Susie Stewart


My purpose in writing is simply this: that you who believe in God’s Son will know beyond the shadow of a doubt that you have eternal life, the reality and not the illusion. And how bold and free we then become in His presence, freely asking according to His will, sure that He’s listening. And if we’re confident that He’s listening, we know that what we’ve asked for is as good as ours.

– 1 John 5:13-15 (MSG)


For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and His ears are attentive to their prayer…

– 1 Peter 3:12 (NIV)


The Lord your God wins victory after victory and is always with you. He celebrates and sings because of you, and He will refresh your life with His love.

– Zephaniah 3:17 (CEV)


Those who fear God get God’s attention; they can depend on His strength.

– Psalm 147:11 (MSG)


By entering through faith into what God has always wanted to do for us—set us right with Him, make us fit for Him—we have it all together with God because of our Master Jesus. And that’s not all: We throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that He has already thrown open His door to us. We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might stand—out in the wide open spaces of God’s grace and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise.

– Romans 5:1-3 (MSG)
