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.

Take time to consider some of the people you have known who have died. Consider their lives now, as they held in the embrace of the living God. Realise that they care for you now more than they ever did while on this earth.

Take time to sit with memories, both for good and for bad, which you had with these people. Allow the love of God’s embrace to heal any hurts that you have had from them. Allow this love to enrich your life even more with the good you had from them.

Rest in the love of your God.
