Calm Amidst the Chaos

Prayer

In these times of on-going “shelter in place” many of us find it hard to focus, hard to remember that we are loved by God for who we are, no matter where we are, and that God wants to enjoy our presence, to spend time with us, and to renew and refresh us through the Spirit. As I did my daily devotions today, I was drawn to this poem, sent by Spiritual Directors International. It’ gave me a grounding spot for my time of centering today, I hope that in sharing it, you too may find the blessing and joy of being in the Presence of the Beloved!

PRAYER

“I will always keep trying. I will never give up.

I will be present with you, God, and with all beings. In every moment. This is my intention.

I will be grateful for all you give, God. I will be grateful for all I experience. I will be grateful in every moment.

I will make of my heart an open window to shine your love and light.

I will make of my life an open window to share your love and light.

I will make of my soul an open window to be your love and light.

This is enough. This is abundance. To shine, share and be your love and light. To shine, share and be the love and light inherent in all beings.

I will acknowledge – and let go – all negativity I create and carry.

I will align with love.

I will align with love.

I will align with love.

And like the prodigal son, I will feel the wonder and joy of coming home to you, God, and being accepted as I am.

No matter how far I stray, no matter how often I stray, I will return home. Your infinite welcome calls me. And I will infinitely respond.

I will choose love. I do choose love. I am love.

And love never ends.”
