March 20th. Befriend Your Inner Witness.

March 20th. Befriend Your Inner Witness.


Begin by finding a quiet place where you can settle in a way that fosters deep peace and relaxation. Allow time for your mind to empty, your breathing to calm, and your spirit to open.

Romans 8:14-17

14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. 15 The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption into the family. And by this Spirit we cry, “Abba!” 16 The Spirit testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in Christ’s sufferings in order that we may also share in Christ’s glory.

“Befriend your inner witness” by Tracy Mooty

Deep inside you, there is a you who is healed, whole, and fully well, grounded and centered in God.  My spiritual director calls this being our Higher Self or the Holy Spirit.  This precious self is your non-anxious, wise self who exists above and beyond all the turmoil of life and can offer you a perspective unlike what you see from the trenches. 

Befriend this part of yourself and you will learn that you are far more than each disappointment, disruption, or discouragement you experience and that you have access to a life perspective and resources that are far greater than you knew.

PRAYER. God, by your Spirit, breathe in me that I might become more fully all that you have created and fashioned me to be. AMEN.
