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.

Hear the call of John the Baptist to repentance.

Think of the things that you feel you need to repent from. Sit with this and ask yourself what do you think and feel about these behaviours. What good do they do you? What bad do they do you?

Do you still feel you need to repent from them…of just from aspects of those behaviours? If you decide to change, what will you do to honour the good you get from those behaviours?

Rest in the love of your God.
