236 – Fall Back – Intention on the Spiritual Journey

A day late.  Things the past few days just did not work out for me to get up a post yesterday but here we are today and we carry on.

This did get me thinking – what is my “fall back.”

If things get out of order or out of balance or simply “just messed up,” what practice or discipline gets me back on track, or at least closer to the track.

What is it for you?

Prayer? Silence? Solitude? Physical Exercise? A Meditative Walk in the Woods or on the Beach? The Quiet, Deep Reading of Holy Scripture? Worship at Church? Music? Works of Art? The Daily Office? The Jesus Prayer? Prayer Beads? Contemplative Prayer?

I could go on, but you get the idea.  Some of the above may be helpful while others, for that moment, do nothing to help you find the center and source of life.

Take some time and think back to times when you needed to find your “go-to” practice to help you get things in order.  What was it?  Maybe one I have named, maybe several, and of course it maybe something I have forgotten to mention.

As you name that practice, give thanks to God for coming to you in that way and providing so many ways to connect with you and hold you in tight.
