What Is Essential Today?

What is essential today?

I like to ask myself this question.

I then jot down the 3-4 things that are my response to this question.

Some days it is one or two things.

This keeps me focused on what is most important today.

The letting go I do during Centering Prayer helps me with this process.

I let go of what is not essential today so I can focus on what is.

I remove the clutter and what remains are the most important things God wishes me to do today.
