Abide in me as I abide in you. -John 15:4

“Let it be your business to keep your mind in the presence of the Lord. If it sometimes wander and withdraw itself from Him, do not much disquiet yourself for that: trouble and disquiet serve rather to distract the mind than to re-collect it: the will must bring it back in tranquility.” ―Brother Lawrence

“Lord, as I draw near to you let your Word quiet my mind.  Help me to re-collect my thoughts and align them with your will.  Amen.
