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 could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
