By Aaron Pazan
Stop, listen, breathe.
Let go of the rush and noise.
And wait patiently before God.
Let the busyness of your body rest,
Let the worries of your mind rest,
Let the doubts of your heart rest.
Let us hear God’s call to holiness,
Open the deep places of our hearts,
And allow your spirit to fill us with your love.
Buysness into peace,
Worry into trust,
Doubt into hope.
Lord in the stllness of this moment,
May we repent of ways
that do not serve you,
And admit to tensons that tell us where we need to change.
As we enter this season
of reflection and refocus,
Let us walk
the way of the Cross together,
And move forward without fear into
God’s eternal purposes.
