Mirror meditation

In the Letter of James, we are told that the Scriptures are like a mirror in which we can see ourselves. In this type of meditation we take a piece of Scripture, hold it before us and consider what echoes within our heart. These echoes help us to see who we are before God and how we are loved.

What usually echoes in us are situations that we are dealing with in our lives. When something strikes us, we do not actively try to solve the situation or work it through. Rather we sit holding it in God's love. The point of such a meditation is to make space within the situation for God's love to be. In 'sitting with' such a situation, painful or sad, we come to recognise the love of God that is at work on our lives.

The suggestions for Mirror reflections can also be used for Exercise reflections but wouldn't be advised for Driving Prayer as often some degree of emotion or distraction might rise in such prayer.

This Sunday's Mirror Meditation

Rest in the love of your God.

As you reflect back over your life, recall the events in which God challenged you out of narrow minded thinking and selfishness. Gently and prayerfully go over what happened. What were you attitudes initially? Who or what challenged you? How did you react? What led you to accept the challenge? Do you find yourself slipping back into old ways?

As you reflect on the pattern of what happened, ask the Holy Spirit to guide you into being ready for the surprise of grace in your life.

Rest in the love of your God.
