A Thought on Reflection“Real silence, real stillness, really holding one’s tongue comes only as the sober consequence of spiritual stillness.” — Dietrich Bonhoeffer
One of the most important elements

A Prayer for Reflection
Lord,is a challenge at times with this hectic pace I lead. Shutting off my mind long enough to stop and encounter the space I am in is nearly an impossible task. Help me to not get too ahead of myself with my future plans or allowing the urgent matters before me to block out my need to reflect and ponder more. You work in the mystery of the unseen and the rhythms of the ordinary. May I learn to pause and think in these ordinary spaces of life that make up my days. Help me to see You, to sense You and to emulate Your light and love in all I do. Amen.
Steps to Salvation
The Bible states that God loves you and cares for you as a person (John 3:16). Humankind has been separated from God by sin (Romans 3:23). God sent His Son as a provision for our salvation through the death of Jesus Christ on the cross and His resurrection from the dead (Romans 5:8). Doing good deeds is not enough (Ephesians 2:8-9), but receiving the free gift of salvation is (John 1:12).
You can invite Jesus Christ into your life right now by praying something like the following:
Dear God, I know I am a sinner. I need Your forgiveness and grace. I believe that Christ paid the penalty for my sin, and He died in my place, and He rose from the dead. I invite Jesus Christ to come into my life as Savior. Thank You for saving me from my sin and making me Your child. Help me to grow and learn how to serve You. Amen.
