Eyes closed, heart open, I try to quiet my mind.
My mind – it’s sometimes not my friend.
My mind – racing in circles, from one thought to the next.
Then God helps me pull in the reins and bring my mind to a trot, and finally a stop.
Eyes closed, heart open, and my mind quiet and focused on God.
That’s when He touches my heart.
That’s when God reaches into my soul and stirs up my emotions.
And I swell and melt with love and gratitude – for God and Jesus and their presence within me.
And there’s a tear, or two – physical evidence of my emotion.
Dear God. Dear Jesus. I’m so grateful for your love and presence within me.
Let’s do this day, together.
