Note: This week’s New Every Morning reflections are structured differently to follow the format of our featured title Holy Listening, which offers 40 daily meditations with scripture verses for lectio divina, a yoga pose, a breath prayer, and reflection questions.
How does your trust grow in the waiting seasons? What areas of your life are lacking trust? Recall a time you had no choice but to be still and trust God. What did you learn?
—Whitney R. Simpson, Holy Listening with Breath, Body, and the Spirit (Upper Room Books, 2016)
