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.

Jesus showed his authority by confronting the evil in peoples’ lives and bringing them healing. When you are at rest in the God’s love, consider the places in your heart that seem to be enmeshed in darkness, the attitudes and actions about which you are ashamed. Bring them before Jesus and ask for his love to touch that area of your life. Ask him what form he would like your healing to take. Under the guidance of the Spirit ask how he would like you to be free. Open your heart, your mind and your life to his healing.

Rest in the love of your God.
