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.

As his ministry began and was successful, Jesus withdrew into a silent and solitary place to pray with his Father over the shape that his ministry should take. As you rest in God’s love consider the aspects of your life that appear to be successful, the things you believe you are doing right. Hold these out to God, consider what works within them. What are their strengths? After you have looked at them fully, ask God how you could improve them even more.

Rest in the love of your God.
