Daily Reflections 

Guidance

 Holy Spirit, give me wisdom

and the courage of my convictions,

as I make life decisions today and every day

Some may be simple, others complex, but all require honesty and quiet reflection

I pray that, with your help and guidance

my heart will be open

to God's will in whatever choices

I am asked to make. Amen.

 

My Soul at Rest

 It is so easy to get caught up in the hectic pace of life.

Pressure to do more and be more, buy more and see more, comes from all sides.

Father, give me serenity, and help me to hear Your voice above the noise.

Father, You are my rock, my strength, and when I remember that, everything else falls into place and my soul is at rest. Amen.

 

Thank You

 Father in heaven, I thank You

for my family and friends

for those who stand by me

in good times and bad

for those who love me for exactly who I am

Their care and concern bring joy to my life and remind me that I am truly blessed. Amen.

 

Take time to laugh. It is the music of the soul.
