This morning I wrote this prayer during my morning meditations.
God we sit in the contentment of this moment,
Knowing it holds all we need to find you,
We sit with still hearts and quiet minds to welcome everything it offers,
May we be at peace, experience freedom and enter your rest.
it seemed like a great sentiment to start the day with especially as we are on retreat with the MSA team. It was a way to help me focus. But it wasn’t long before my equilibrium fragmented. Someone blew a fuse that disconnected the internet and panic, panic we couldn’t figure it out at first. Now I am back on line but the contentment of the moment that I had experienced earlier in the morning has definitely gone. How to regain that I was wondering. Our team meets again in 20 minutes and I feel the need to be centered and attentive to God.
In moments like this it is always easy to get stressed out (at least for me) but I realize too that it is more important than anything to sit quietly in the presence of God and just rest in the stillness of the moment – so guess what – the start of our retreat this morning will be some quiet moments of reflection and centering all our hearts on God
We would appreciate your prayers at this time. We are brainstorming about the next 2 -3 years and we need God’s wisdom and discernment as we move forward.
