As you begin today, take three deep breaths in and out to focus.  Meditate on the following words from Ephesians 2, paying attention to the things that jump out at you:

But God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ — by grace you have been saved — and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

Close with the Lord’s Prayer, finding comfort, challenge and strength in these familiar words.
