With my Bible Breath Bracelet: a great here and now devotional!
The Reading for Today: 2 Corinthians 6
Imagine a pencil held in a vertical position by gently pressing down upon the eraser end with the point on the surface. The pencil will hold the weight of your hand and arm as long as it is perpendicular to the table. The entire pencil hovers over the point beneath. If you move the hand away from the vertical, it will fall.
When you move away from the present moment, guilt and shame over the past, or anxiety about the future, will have you fall. “Now is the acceptable time,” says Paul. Another expression goes: “The point of power is the present.”
Relax into the chair or floor that supports you. Be in the Lord’s presence that fills this present moment with power and grace.
