Time and again, I find a divine reset needed in my life. I’m sure we’ve all felt this way, and we know it is easier said than done. Personally, I have been feeling stuck on autopilot for several weeks. And it seems as if the off switch has gotten stuck! Wow…
As much as I try to just push through, I’ve found the most helpful action to take is to get away from the distractions. It seems that getting away to a quiet place apart from the distractions of life is a must.
Once we’ve gotten to our prayer closet or other getaway spot, the second key is in quieting our souls and the distractions of our minds.
Finally, we focus on just being with God. The true peace we need is found only in Jesus after all. It is in cultivating intimacy with Him through simply resting quietly in His presence, engaging in personal prayer, and thinking on His beautiful heart toward us.
In the midst of all this, I found a book which came out only a day before I discovered it! The writer, Ed Cyzewski, an evangelical Christian, was struggling in a similar way. He speaks of what I mention above and the role of contemplative prayer in the life of a believer.
You’ll appreciate this book even more if:
- You feel like you can never do enough for God or in life.
- You just don’t feel good enough at times.
- You simply need quiet in your soul.
- You desire a deeper connection to our God who is love and life.
