Meditation: New year, new plans

This brief new year’s meditation formed the basis of the Holy Yoga class I taught last week.

Jeremiah 29:11-13: For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. (NIV)

In this new year, what plans does God have for you? Consider how we recognize them, how we overlook them … and how we run from them.

How can we accept his plans and let go of those we cling to even though they are worn out or perhaps never fit us at all?

Breathe in:    what God gives you
Release:         what you no longer need

Breathe in:    hope
Release:         fear

Breathe in:    peace
Release:         perfection

Breathe in:    ?
Release:         ?

New Year, new plans
