Refreshing my mind, body, and soul keeps my heart light.

Sometimes life seems so busy and I have so many demands on my time that I may feel out of balance. I take this as a signal to take some time away. I might plan a day trip or touch base with a dear friend or family member. I might take a walk and let my thoughts wander as I immerse myself in the beauty around me.

Even if I can’t do any of those, I can usually take a few moments for myself wherever I am. I quiet my thoughts. I breathe deeply and affirm the presence of God. I let peace sink deep into my soul and rest there. Nothing but stillness surrounds and enfolds me.

When I refresh myself with self-care, I come away recharged and renewed. I give thanks for these restful interludes and the opportunity to engage life with enthusiasm and energy.

It will be a healing for your flesh and a refreshment for your body.

—Proverbs 3:8

Awake, my soul! 

Each experience is a gift in awakening to my soul’s potential. Every day holds opportunities to grow and discover unknown parts of myself. With abiding trust, I welcome this ongoing enlightenment.

With an open mind and heart, I stay present to these revelations and discoveries, even those that may be initially unsettling, as I gently explore those parts of myself I am discovering anew. Each new realization is my inspiration for further exploration.

Like the blossom stretching beyond the calyx or the butterfly emerging from its chrysalis, I grow beyond familiar boundaries. My life is made ever more fulfilling and beautiful as I welcome new revelations with faith and grace.

My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make melody. Awake, my soul!

Daily Word 08/31/2022

I reflect the light of God.

If I gaze upon the surface of a moonlit lake on a still night, I will see light reflected on the water’s surface. But if the wind disturbs the water or clouds obscure the moon, the reflection won’t be visible. 

This truth pertains to my spiritual life. The light of God is always shining, even if the winds of life disturb my focus or the darkness of my doubt casts a shadow. 

I have the power to calm the winds and clear the clouds so I may see the light shining brightly and reflect it once again. I tend to my spiritual path and deepen my awareness of God’s presence. I make time for prayer and devotional practices to better reflect the light of God. 

I am a spiritual being, a living reflection of all that God is. 

He is the reflection of God’s glory and the exact imprint of God’s very being.

—Hebrews 1:3

Daily Word 08/30/2022

I am guided by my inner light.

I am guided by the light of God within that helps me through any decision, no matter how great or small. I merge my awareness with the light of God within and release the concerns of my heart.

In the silence of prayer, I open to wisdom. Sometimes my guidance comes quickly as a whisper in my heart, sometimes later as revelation resulting from conversation with a friend or even as the inspiration from an unexpected sign along my path.

Every day I make choices, some simple, others more complex. My inner light is always shining upon my life’s path. With God as my inner resource, I trust my guidance and move forward, sure of every step.

The dawn from on high will break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness … to guide our feet into the way of peace.

—Luke 1:78-79

If I face challenges or uncertainty, I know guidance is always as close to me as my next prayer.

Spirit within is my protection.

Coral reefs buffer nearby coastlines from damaging storms, floods, and waves. These reefs serve as a barrier to loss and destruction, allowing the coastline to coexist with the weather and water. The storms and waves may make their way to shore, but with limited impact.

I imagine divine protection as my spiritual coral reef. Even if I feel afraid of life’s storms, I can find protection in Spirit. I am one with God. This connection is my shelter.

I am courageous, confident, and resilient. I imagine a barrier surrounding me, keeping me safe. Divine protection strengthens me, steadying me as I bravely face the waves.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.

—Isaiah 43:2

My connection with God in the stillness of my heart is the origin of my joyful nature. I meet even unwelcome circumstances with positive light and energy when I shine the light of joy upon them. Discord and distress wither in the brilliance and radiance of joy.

Joy is my heart’s jewel. I embark on each new day eager to shine the light and love of God, and share the blessings of peace and plenty, each one a benediction of joy.

Daily Word 08/19/2022

I forgive and put the past behind me.

Unforgiveness keeps me bound to the past. Ruminating over old hurts, revisiting scenes of long-ago personal dramas, and dredging up hard feelings trap me in a state of bitterness and make my life feel small and cold.

I am ready to live a full and vibrant life. I make the first step by releasing my resentments in prayer. I pray for the strength to release the past and for the grace to release others from the prison of my unforgiveness. I bless the experiences that led me to become the person I am.

Lighter, I begin to imagine a future free of resentment, unencumbered by unpleasant memories. My mind is clear and my heart is open. I am ready to begin again.

Put away from you all bitterness and wrath and anger and wrangling and slander, together with all malice.

—Ephesians 4:31
