God is with you and for you in every moment.


Psalm 16:11

You will show me the path to life, abounding joy in your presence, the delights at your right hand forever.


It’s that nagging perpetual question:

What is my purpose? What is God’s will for me?

Finding the answer is the way of contemplation.

It takes being present to God (who is Presence) and listening in the depths of your heart.

Then it takes action…taking steps in the direction that you sense God is leading you.

It might not be the popular path.

It may be a lonely path leading you away from what loved ones want for you or what your ego wants.

It may cause anxiety and anguish…but you will also experience inner peace and excitement!

This path will lead you to your true self and to God.

As Thomas Merton wrote in New Seeds of Contemplation, “Not to accept and love and do God’s will is to refuse the fullness of my existence.”

Where is God leading you?

Listen…and then take a step in that direction today.
