Weekly intention | 02.10.20

We tend to be very hard on ourselves, when all the while, God created us from all that is good, just like him. Take in this week’s intention with a breath of fresh air, and stand a little bit taller, because you are good.

This week, I will remember that you are good, even when life isn’t.

This week, I will see that everything in creation is its own miracle of your making, and I’ll stop a moment to appreciate the wonder of my surroundings.

This week, I will lean into your promises, Lord. I will plant in my heart your goodness and remember that, because you made me in your image, I, too, am filled with goodness.

Let me harness the good within me now, Lord, for your glory. Let it rise up inside me and be shared with others through the kind words on my tongue, the compassion in what I see, your voice I hear, and a healing touch.

Push back the forces that would harm or thwart me from walking the path you’ve prepared for me, Holy Father. Crown me with beauty instead of ashes, and clothe me with your light.

Amen.

“Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.’ So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”

Genesis 1:26-27

To rest instead of hurry? To worship instead of wander? If you thought to yourself “yes” for even a second, this week’s intention is for you.

In the dead of winter, it can be tempting to slip into a deadened state of mind, but if we choose to view this season as a time of spiritual preparation, we will reap the rewards of new life in the spring and a harvest thereafter. Practicing the ways of Jesus – silence, solitude, prayer, knowing and trusting the Word of God, serving others – is the blueprint to a life full of the fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

Sometimes, life is hard. Really hard. And as much as we’d like the Holy Spirit to take us by the hand and whisk us out of the war, it’s much more likely that what we are experiencing is indeed entrusted to the mystery of God’s holy plan in our life. This week’s intention is about reminding ourselves of God’s promises in a time and within a world that is quick to convince us otherwise.
