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.

When you are at rest, recall those times in your life when you have been thrown into confusion and which you have found very challenging. Ponder closely on one of those times. Ask the Spirit to guide you as you slowly recall what happened, how you felt, reacted and responded. Can you see the places where the difficult situation called you into growth in faith and love? Can you see where you grew and where you faltered? Ask the Spirit to show you how you can allow the healing presence of Jesus to led you to grow anew from that situation.

Rest in the love of your God.
