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.

John the Baptist used a number of images and words to describe who Jesus was and what his mission would be: Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world, the one who existed before him, the one who would baptise with the Holy Spirit, the Chosen One of God. Take some time to sit with these images and ponder what they could mean to you.

If you had to compile your own list, how would you describe Jesus and what he had done in your life?

Rest in the love of your God.
