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 7/20/13:

This week I ave been focusing on rest and renewal of my spiritual life. What needs rest? What needs renewal? and What needs regeneration? Well, if you are anything like me and others I know, your life is very out of balance between the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual parts of your being. Now is the time to take a vacation from the hustle bustle of the world, and do some self healing and reflection. I use sleep, meditation, inventories of myself, and prayer. I also change my eating pattern to one of lighter and more digestible foods like fruit, light soups, vegetables and protein,…leave out the bread and sugar.

Meditation works well for me to bring harmony and equipoise. I also get beautiful clarity too. Call it a mid- year check- up. I know where I wanted to go, and I see where I am now…is this where I wanted to be….off course? Time for reflection and prayer… to get back on track. What about you? Where do you need refocusing or renewal? Happy spiritual renewal vacation!

“Beloved Lord, thank you for the PROMPTING! We know that all things of evaluation and change come from you. Thank you for your guidance of us over the last six months. Please keep us close to you as we take a clarifying look at our lives. Help us to balance where we need to balance, rest where we need rest, and take action where we need to take action. We are grateful for the times of quiet, rest and renewal with you. Blessings abound… give rest to the weary, peace to the grieving, strength to the weak, focus to the scattered, understanding to the unsure, and love to all. AMEN.

Love, Rev. Judith
