Daily Bread May 18

Zac Harmon-McLaughlin of Sacramento, CA, USA

You who fear the LORD, praise him!
   All you offspring of Jacob, glorify him;
   stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel!
The poor shall eat and be satisfied;
   those who seek him shall praise the LORD.
   May your hearts live forever!
All the ends of the earth shall remember
   and turn to the LORD;
and all the families of the nations
   shall worship before him. -Psalm 22:23, 26-27

don’t talk.
Do you hear it?

My dear, God is right before you.
Stop talking.
Stop thinking.

Be Holy Attentive.

God has found you.


And you will hear God say,
“Beloved, I am here.
I will hold you.
I will love you.
I will keep you.”


Prayer Phrase

I am about to do a new thing, now it springs forth… (Isaiah 43:19).

Spiritual Practice

A New Thing

Breathe deeply and listen within. Where is the Spirit doing a new thing in you? How do you feel about the new thing that might be emerging? Are you excited, resistant, fearful, hopeful? Take whatever you are experiencing to prayer. Breathe deeply and listen around you. Where is the Spirit doing a new thing in your community? Pay attention to how it feels to discern the Spirit’s activity and presence within and around you.
