All You Can Be
May the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in all ways. The Lord be with all of you. —2 Thessalonians 3:16, NRSV
In which areas of your being do you most desire peace—physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, relational, others? What do you long for most?
Wisdom and Hope
In Proverbs 24:13-14, the writer describes wisdom as being like honey to the soul: “If you find [wisdom], you will find a future, and your hope will not be cut off.” Spend some time in your sacred space this week, naming your hopes for the future. Write them down on a piece of paper. Fold it and leave it somewhere in your sacred space as an offering to God.
