Be still, and know that I am God! - Psalm 46:10 (NRSV)
I anticipated a hectic day at work, juggling meetings and projects with deadlines. Even lunchtime was set aside for a working meeting. I decided to jot down a plan listing what tasks I would tackle in which hour. I could get everything done if I stuck to my agenda, but...
When I set aside a time to rest with God, I can better serve the rest of the day.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
