Contemplation

Contemplation 

Jesus told them, “This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent” (John 6:29; NLT).

Be still and know that I am God! (Psalm 46:10; NLT).

Stand in silence in the presence of the Sovereign LORD (Zephaniah 1:7; NLT).

Be silent before the LORD, all humanity (Zechariah 2:13; NLT).


Lord,
With every in-breath,
I turn to you,
Opening my heart
To absorb your love.

And with every out-breath,
I whisper your name,
Letting go of my thoughts,
And turning back to you.

Again and again, like this,
I turn to you,
Opening my heart,
Whispering your name,
Letting go of my thoughts,
And absorbing your love –

Until it’s time
To face the day ahead.
