The Weekly Breather: Where are You Going?

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Settle Yourself and Release

Inhale the breath of God…
Exhale the breath of God…

While inhaling and exhaling, notice your body.  Starting with the top of your head, scan your body: your temples, cheeks, shoulders, arms, chest, hips, legs, feet, back. Where there is tension or pain, invite the peace and healing power of Christ to relax and heal those areas in your body.

Continue to inhale the breath of God

Exhale the breath of God and notice your thoughts. Don’t focus on them; just notice them. Are there any thoughts that are invasive during this time of settling? Picture the hands of Christ. Place your thoughts into the hands of Christ by saying, “Jesus I give you…”

When you are finished conclude by saying, “Amen”.

Encounter: Feast on the Word

The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you.”
Genesis 12:1

Read Genesis 12:1 three times by inserting your name or the word “me” in the text instead of Abram’s name.


Ponder the words, “Leave,” “Go,” and “will show you.”
Spend some time journaling by completing one of the following or all of the following phrases:

God is calling me to leave ____.
God is calling me to go____.
God is showing me____.


Father, give me the courage to leave.
Empower me with the strength to go.
May I be content in the place where you lead me,
knowing you are with me.


The vision of our team is to provide resources designed to encourage individuals in personal soul care and to equip them to care for others within the context of their own vocation, all from a distinctly Wesleyan perspective. We hope that this site is a means to connect resources with those who are in need of training and experience—including pastors, counselors or anyone caring for others.
