Un-busy: Presence

Un-busy: Presence


The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
     He makes me lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside still waters;
    he restores my soul.
He leads me in right paths
    for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the darkest valley,
    I fear no evil;
for you are with me;
    your rod and your staff—
    they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
    my whole life long.    –Psalm 23

Reflect: Connection with God and with other people feeds the soul. How are you daily connecting with God? How are you connecting deeply with others? Do you find yourself longing for connection…to someone or something?

Reflect and Practice: Presence leads to connection. What can you do this week to be more present to God? What can you do to be more present to others?

Practice: Pay attention to who (or what) you spend time with this week. Try keeping a record of who and what you spend your time with. Who (or what) do you spend most of your time with and what does that say about your life connections? If you are not happy with what your record says, then consider reprioritizing your time!
