Thinking of God…

 

Why should I be anxious?

It is not up to me to think of myself.

It is up to me to think of God.

And it is up to God to think of me.

– Simone Weil  1909-1943

  • Light a candle to remember Christ’s presence with you.

  • Do all you do today for the glory of God.
  • Your plans don’t need to change.
  • Do all you do today for the glory of God.
  • As you sit in silent meditation, open yourself to be available to the glory of God.
  • Notice, however, if your plans do change (because your focus is for the glory of God as you move toward the cross.)
  • What is God’s message for you?
  • How will you live for the glory of God tomorrow?
