Welcome to Riveted! My name is Jack Anderson. I love God. Yet I've noticed lately that I haven't noticed Him lately. I'm too easily distracted from the one most worthy of my attention. What captures my attention captures my heart.
I want God to capture mine. So I want to give Him what He gives me: my full attention. Writing is one way I do that. I pray it'll help you stay 'riveted' too.

Waiting in the Entryway
Christ lives here. In this heart of mine He now calls home.
When He knocked, I opened. When I opened, He entered.
Then He stopped. And waited. Just inside the entryway.
That was years ago. So where is He now? I have no idea!
I know He’s here somewhere. In this house I call my life.
He said He’d never leave. I just can't find Him right now.
Then I hear a knock. After playing hide + seek, I find Him.
Inside the entryway. Where I left Him. Knocking. Waiting.
Prayer is a conversation. A heart to heart conversation between friends. He speaks His heart. I speak mine. However, I don't know my own heart. But God does. And in His Word, I find words that help me express mine.
NEW PRAYERS POST: ‘Looking for hearts that look for yours’
You look for those who understand that what matters most in life is you.
I thought I had such a heart, but what I see in the mirror says otherwise.
By the way I spend my time when I can spend it as I want. By the choices
I make when I can make any choice. By what I want most when I can want anything. By the thoughts that fill my mind when I can focus on anything.
I know you matter most. But do you matter most to me? Read More.
