“I want to draw more on God, not on my skills.”
That is what makes Centering Prayer and other contemplative practices so wonderful.
When you sit in silence you bring all of You to your sit.
You LET GO of
All your preconceived notions
All your emotions
All your thoughts
All your fears
All your worries
You sit with the GREAT CREATOR.
And open to the presence and actions of God within.
You are not alone!
You sit with a God who loves YOU.
That is it.
During this time God prays in you the actions you are to take.
Think of God as your life long partner.
I find this very comforting.
You arise from your sit ready to partner with God.
And you get to sit with God each day.
Twice if you can.
And continue to walk with God everyday.
Everyday your actions spawn from these silent sits with God.
They become a place you come from and live your life from.
