God's Providence

10 Minute Daily Retreat (no.17)
By Colin Sutton 

'What no eye has seen and no ear has heard, what the mind cannot visualise; all that God has prepared for those who love Him.'  (1 Corinthians 2:9)

I must not limit the power and will of God to my human understanding. I need to believe, and then I will not only understand, but also be given the grace to receive what God has prepared for me. 

This includes living without fear, hate, worry, anxiety, change, guilt, inferiority, or defeat. 

You have never seen, never heard, and never even imagined the things God will give to those who love him.

In this time of quiet ask God for the grace to receive one of the many gifts He has to offer you.

5 minutes: READ the text slowly.
REFLECT on a phrase or word that struck you.
SPEAK to God about your thoughts.
5 minutes: LISTEN to God speak to you.
RESPOND with a prayer that feels right for you.
