Deeper Life: Choosing to grow spiritually through times of grief

When sorrow barges through the door of my heart like an unwelcome guest, I have learned to take a deep breath and welcome her as the clumsy cleaning crew she is, here only to sweep out cobwebs and dust, to freshen up the arrangement of furniture and clear out the superficial things I don’t need (or […]

Simple Faith: Seeking God’s Wisdom in Silence

Again, I resist the pressure to mold myself into the shape of a life I can see. Again, I refuse to be controlled by the chaotic voices swirling around me. Again, I choose to turn down the volume of this crazy world and enter into the silence beyond reason, where I discover the sweet eternal […]

Question for God at the end of the day

When I’ve said my good nights and squeezed as much joy and productivity out of the day as I could … When I’ve left my tiny offering of love on the table … When I’ve fully recognized that everything I did (even though it was my best) wasn’t nearly enough to heal this broken world […]

The simple path to peace … what Unite in Prayer is all about

If we’d all tune in and listen deeply enough to the Perfect Quiet inside, we’d all know the Way, the Truth and the Light for ourselves … We could wander in a trillion different directions and remain One, united beyond time and space, free like children playing, knowing what to do without making any sense.

Simple Faith: Peace in troubled times

Fiery chaos surrounds me, but You are the still waters in my soul. Through prayer, I retreat- into the silence of Your presence, and I am not burned. Thank You for the promise of Your perfect peace, and Thank You for sustaining us through it all.   Related Scripture John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; […]

Me Too Prayer (for courage to speak out against sexual assault)

Thank you God for the swell of voices, who have found the courage to speak out against sexual harrassment and assault. It’s awesome to see the truth coming to light and justice being served in some instances. Today, I ask that You rise up even more brave warriors of truth to speak out against their […]

Spiritual Journey: When you need to sneak away from the crowd

I love sneaking away from the crowd to find a quiet place, where I can gaze at the moon or lose myself in a love letter, delivered by ripples of light on the tide. I love the gentle connection between water and land, as each wave of Deep Blue Divine finds a way to splash uniquely onto earth. I will never […]
