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.

Recall some time when you have been profoundly moved by the presence or God, or a work of God. Sit with that experience for some time. Focus on yourself in the situation, then focus on the awesomeness of God.
Can you notice a contrast between the two: perhaps how too much fixation on one’s smallness leads to paralysis, while wonder before God leads to a sense of peace and buoyancy?
As you rest in this love, ask God what he wants you to do with your life in the best few days.

Rest in the love of your God.
