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.

The persons of the Trinity give and receive of themselves to each other in love and it is in the image of this God that I have been made and from which I should live. By reflecting on my giving and receiving, I can discover how God loves through me.

What have I received from others in the past few days? How graciously did I receive? Did I acknowledge and thank them?
What have I given away in the past few days? How graciously did I do it? How did I accept thanks if it was offered?

Rest in the love of your God.
