STATION: Water

Seeking release

Life is busy.  Commitments pull us in many directions.  Responsibilities attempt to smother us.  We seek to make a living, to live.  To love, to give.  Yet so much seems to get in the way of what we are seeking.

What is it that has you preoccupied, worried, anxious?

Water is life


Invitation:

Take a cup, fill it with water.  Imagine the cleansing that water brings, the life it provides.  Take a tablet from the dish.  Feel its edges, its texture.  See it as a representation of all that has you worried and anxious.
Drop it in the water.  As the tablet dissolves, allow your worry to dissolve with it.   Give it to God and trust in Him.

SCRIPTURE:

“Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you.”
—1 Peter 5:7

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear.  Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?”

— Matthew 6:25

At the station

Prayer:

God thank you for this life you given me.
Receive my worries, my cares, my concerns.

I trust you today.  Help me trust you each day.

In Christ, Amen.
