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.

Imagine how the words of the prophet Isaiah would apply to your life:
If Jesus came to you offering to help you-
what parts of your life would you feel need straightening out?
what makes you go into a ‘valley’ – to feel despondent or depressed?
what challenges seem like a mountain in your way?
what are the rough places of your spirit that need to be gentled?

As you face these aspects of yourself, know that Jesus wants to bring his grace here more than you could possibly want yourself.

Rest in the love of your God.
