the direction of simplicity

After a very busy few days, we were encouraged and challenged by reading these lines during our lunchtime prayer today:

“Help me to know that the secret of contentment
lies in organising the self
in the direction of simplicity.

Unless You have another task for me,
keep me vigilant in prayer.”

(from the Northumbria Community’s Celtic Daily Prayer)

Thank you God that you teach us to live for each day, not fretting or worrying about tomorrow, but focusing simply on you and all that you have for us in each moment.
