God Works in Secret


Today reflect on a passage from Henri Nouwen, “Whereas the way of the world is to insist on publicity, celebrity, popularity, and getting maximum exposure, God prefers to work in secret…in God’s sight the things that really matter seldom take place in public.” What comes up as you consider these words? 


Today I will turn from the world’s
way of measuring my success and worth,
and instead, know that God deeply values 
all of who I am. 
Yes, I trust that away 
from the world’s judgment and glare,
my life is precious. 
The beauty unfailingly seen by God. 


Be extra gentle with yourself today;  allow time to shed the pressures of the world.
