Does anyone else not focus on God a lot with all their being?

It's easy for me to not focus on God with all my heart, soul, and might. Anyone else?

I focus on God when I choose too, it kind of naturally "flows" that way.
God is not always first and foremost on my mind and I don;t think that is possible for humans.

I find it quit difficult to walk with him ceaselessly, and far too easy to forget He exists in the moment. Or me trying to convince myself He doesn't as I'm watering a seed of sin... :?

Enoch accomplished it, but remember he lived 365 years and if memory servers, he didn't start his walk with God until he was old by our standards and after rearing a family. I keep that in mind when I discourage myself due to my lack of living faith.

On the flip side, I remember Him and keep Him close to me consciously more and more. He's definitely a partner in my life, and I see Him and His effects the longer and deeper I stay in Him. Last night, for example, many times I was focused in work or in talk with others and forgot Him (yet knowing Him has changed me to where if I never knew Him, I'd be a different person; so I can reflect Him by who He's making me into even when I forget Him). And there were times where I was walking with Him, keeping with Him and following Him. And those are the times when I'll see Him act, and sometimes through me, always around me, and through others as He's allowed or opens His way into.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 <-- think of it as a dwelling state
Ephesians 2:10 <-- Even though He's omniscient, we still have to choose and live it, as He is a God of the living. In this perspective, do you see the Trust God has put in you before you were born?
Deuteronomy 8:6 + Colossians 1:10-12 Read these two together.

Yes. The physical world just seems a lot more real to me usually.
