This devotional is uniquely Catholic in that the meditation is based on the daily readings for the Mass, called the Lectionary. But you don't have to be Catholic to find a home here! Click on 'Today's reading' for the lectionary link to read the bible readings, then click the back button and spend a few minutes with the meditation. Relax! This is your time, well deserved, much needed, and holy. Let all the things you "should be doing" melt away and bask in the presence of your God who loves you!

Before we begin, let us pray,

Father, you created me and put me on earth for a purpose. Jesus, you died for me and called me to complete your work. Holy Spirit, you help me to carry out the work for which I was created and called. In your presence and name - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - I begin my meditation.

Something ordinary.

Lectionary: 237

"If the prophet had told you to do something extraordinary, would you not have done it?" Too often, we look for God in the big and flashy, and miss Him present in the quiet, ordinary moments. How simple for Naaman to jump in the Jordan, yet he wanted a big show. The people of Nazareth were also blinded to the son of God in their midst. Our challenge is to find God in the ordinary daily moments of family life. 
One more thing: Water plays a big part in our life, as should our God. Every time you drink or use water today, pray the psalm, "Athirst is my soul for the living God." When you crave God, you will find Him in your midst. 
Prayer: Father, I thirst for you! Help me to see Your presence while I care for my family. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
