Intention has several meanings such as a prayer but it’s also defined as a process for the healing of incised wounds. Most of us carry wounds made long before a diagnosis, life shift or emotional struggle. It simply took the pain to press it to the surface again. What would your life be like without old emotional wounds? The beauty of a new year is fresh beginnings. We leave yesterday behind and hold hope for the promise in tomorrow. But what about being mindful of the moment?

Healing happens mind, body, spirit and soul. As you work your way back to self and confront the demons, you will dis(H)arm them. You liberate a prisoner locked inside when you begin with this healing truth – God loves you.
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 1 John 4:16

My soul is a spacious place for your grace and I will reflect this by
I will have an outward expression of my belief in you through
Because my soul rests in love I am able to show this love to others when I
