"Do not remember the former things, or consider the things of old. I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert."
We have started a new year. The past is behind us and a new year lies ahead. What are things in your life you'd like to let go of? What do you want God to make NEW in your life? Let's breathe together as we remind ourselves that we have a God that never leaves us, and continues to make all things new.
Relax, and find your breath. When you're ready, pray with me:
Inhale: The past gone, Lord,
Exhale: work in me in new ways.
Repeat that breath prayer as many times as you would like. End your meditation time with one long inhale and one extra long exhale.
