Heart Surgery

A great way to end your workout each day is to spend time thanking God for what He’s done and praising God for who He is. By doing so you let God do “heart surgery”: “I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh” (Ezekiel 36:26).

Quiet Prayer

Father, there are ways in which I have grown quiet. Some hopes and dreams in my heart are too long-awaited, too sacred to be the stuff of idle chatter. Lord, I trust your faithfulness and your goodness and your love. I offer these dreams back to you and entrust them to your care.

Proclaim the Beatitudes

It is always a joyful experience for us to read and reflect on the Beatitudes! In proclaiming the Beatitudes, Jesus asks us to follow him and to travel with him along the path of love, the path that alone leads to eternal life. It is not an easy journey, yet the Lord promises us his grace and he never abandons us.
