Staying Spiritually Centered

Living Spiritually

Help me know, O God, that you are still present with me, even in my distractions and interruptions. But also help me savor those spiritually centered moments so much that I will make room in my life for more of them. When I am impatient because I can't see, touch, hear, or feel you, let your love seep surely into me until my heart turns back to you in surprise and delight.

Healing Words: STRENGTH

I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence but it comes from within. It is there all the time.
