Pause + Pray

Like Green Sunflowers


Look around your life today. Can you see how God is right here? Can you tell that you don’t have to wait for anything else to happen? 


God, help me to be present to what’s right here.
Let me feel you, not just when I find easy proof
in what’s wide open, yellow, full of light.

Like a sunflower before it unfolds, life is often about loving
the green ball of hope, t
rusting you are here,
always at the center of our lives e
ven before the blooming.


Reflect on philosopher Teilhard de Chardin’s words: “Teach me to adore it by seeing you hidden within it.”
