Jesus, I desire to start this day with you. And yet, my mind keeps flitting to so many things:

the projects I want to accomplish,

the people I want to talk to,

the people I wish I didn’t have to talk to.

I wonder.  Are these things distractions to spiritual concentration or invitation to see God in the ordinary?  I’m not sure.

Jesus, I know that you are that Center who knows no distraction.  So I offer up my mental fragmentation to you, O Lord my God.

May my scatteredness become your gatheredness.

As I am contemplating a thousand things, Jesus, may I somehow be contemplating you.
