Turn us again to yourself, O God. Make your face shine down upon us. Only then will we be saved.
Beloved: I’m dependent on You to keep me pointed in the right direction: toward You. My tendency is to wander off into a multitude of distractions, forgetting yet again that You are my Center and my Treasure. Turn me again to Yourself as often as I turn away. Keep me focused on You alone.
Lover: My Beloved One, what joy it brings Me when you pray this prayer of longing to remain in relationship with Me. When I am your Center, your choices and limits become more clear. You know what to say no to as well as when to say yes. Life becomes more simple, less cluttered. Worry can be put aside, for it has no place in My presence. With Me as your Center, your heart can be at peace even in the midst of the storm.”
6Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. 8And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. (Philippians 4: 6-8, NLT)
