Bible Verse of the Day
Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst?

Inspiration & Prayer for the week of 4/1/12:

“Union With God” In a sense we are all unified with God because God dwells within us. His Presence is there, but we are estranged from it by our thoughts, our feelings, and by the noise of the world. Everything we focus on before God ,keeps us from knowing Him. Our focus is outside us rather than within or on what we want rather than what He wants for us. How many of us abide by and do what the Bible instructs to do? “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all else shall be added unto you.” It also tells us to “Be still and know I am God.”

Questions arise from this months theme, “Union with God”. What does it mean to be in union with God? How do we get there? What will it feel like? etc. There are many ways we can get into union with God. The two that I work with are prayer and meditation. During Lent and Holy Week,I work on eliminating those things and habits that keep me from union with the Lord. (Prayer, Forgiveness, and “Let Go, and let God be God in my Life.”) What are the ways you unify with God?

“Our Beloved Lord, help us to make the changes in our lives that keep us in union with You. As we let go of old Ideas, addictions, habits, and old worn out emotions, give us the grace to form new habits of forgiveness, kindness, love, compassion and mercy. Help us in prayer and meditation on Your Word to be more unified with you. Thank you for your tender care all these many years. Just as You were resurrection, so may we be resurrected in Your Will for us and the Communion with You. Thank you for the blessings of this day and everyday. AMEN.”

May you be blessed each day, Rev. Judith
