Finding Grace

woman holding heart leaf


Sit for a few minutes with this quote from St. Elizabeth Ann Seton: “Contemplate how you are being asked to give your heart to God amidst everyday activities. Be prepared to meet your grace in every circumstance of life.”


Ever-present, loving God,
Help me to slow down enough 
to be open to the moments of grace 
you abundantly send my way today.
Help me find unexpected graces in the people, 
circumstances, and places that I encounter.


Look over your calendar for today, or if it is evening, for tomorrow. Note several “everyday activities” that have become routine, humdrum, or even dreaded. Pinpoint one where you will deliberately give “your heart to God” so you might “meet your grace” in that moment.
