It is easy for us to forget or get distracted from the truth we know, so to help remind you of truth, choose pictures or other symbols to represent those truths and place them strategically around your home and office. For example, Jesus once told me this truth: "You see Me as a distant lighthouse guiding you in the storm toward the shore, but I am actually beside you in the boat in the midst of the storm, and I carry you to the safety of My lighthouse where you are surrounded by My light." This truth was a powerful revelation to me of God's nature, and to help me focus on it, I put lighthouse pictures in my kitchen and in my office, I use ceramic lighthouses as accent pieces at home and in my office, I even have a set of lighthouse dishes. Everywhere I look, I am reminded Jesus is right beside me through the storm, carrying me into His light.
If you struggle to remember Jesus is always present with you, set up a chair in your main living area - the space where you spend most of your time - and call it your chair for Jesus. Don't allow anyone to use the chair (not even for hanging coats over or setting books down). Your Jesus chair becomes a visual, tangible reminder of His constant presence. This faith hack is great if you have children, too, because they need something concrete to understand and connect with when you talk about God's presence in your home. They can even sit on the floor in front of the chair (sitting at the feet of Jesus) and talk with Him during their prayer time. (As a matter of fact, so can you!) Soon, your whole family will get accustomed to talking with Jesus all the time, as you recognize He is always with you.
When pesky negative thoughts try to invade your mental space, don't entertain them (meaning don't analyze, mull over, contemplate, examine, or extrapolate). Instead, as soon as you recognize it as negative, bring to your mind a truth you are sure you know, one you have received from Jesus. Simple truths are better, like "I know You love me," but it needs to be a truth you are certain of. If you haven't received a truth directly from Jesus, choose a Scripture verse that holds great meaning to you or words to a chorus that is uplifting to you. Repeat the truth or verse in your mind and speak (or sing) it aloud (yes, this matters!) Keep repeating it; it is impossible to hold a negative and positive thought in your brain at the same time.
When you wake up, before your feet hit the floor, say, "Good morning, Jesus. What are we going to do today?" Spend about 30 seconds centering yourself in your heart as you prayerfully consider your day. This simple act will focus you on the Lord and begin your day in conversation with Jesus.
