The Contemplative Companion for Friday, February 27, 2015

“I trust in God; my soul trusts in his word. My soul waits for God more than sentinels wait for the dawn.” – Psalm 130.5-6

In the silence, I consent to the presence and action of the Spirit of God. I discover that the silence is the womb of God’s word, and in it I see myself and others more clearly. As I wait for the transformation of my perception, I listen for the way to go and what to say, especially to those who challenge me.

“In the presence of the angels I will sing your praise; I will worship at your holy temple.” – Psalm 138.2

Called by the higher, my life falls into place. Held in the divine order, my heart bows to the presence of wisdom and love. May it touch my heart and turn it into a temple of gratitude.

“My sacrifice, O God, is a contrite spirit; a heart contrite and humbled, O God, you will not spurn.” -Psalm 51.19

A week into Lent I recall the ashen mark I bore upon my forehead, following the cross of Jesus so to partake in Christ. I offer my Lenten Journey to God. May this season of humbling lead to a rising of being.

“God is close to the brokenhearted; and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”  – Psalm 34.19

As I journey through the heart-opening season of Lent, I call upon God in my weakness and temptations for help, and in so doing, experience the joy of my salvation.

The Contemplative Companion for Monday, February 23, 2015

“The law of God is perfect, refreshing the soul. The decree of God is trustworthy, giving wisdom to the simple.”  – Psalm 19.8

As I awaken more to God’s way and word, I discover more of my Self in the light of God’s wisdom. I wish to receive the refreshment that comes from living under the guidance of that which is truly trustworthy.

“Have mercy on me, O God, in your goodness; in the greatness of your compassion cleanse me.” – Psalm 51.3

The edge of my Being is revealed in my moments of undoing by what I have done.

Broken open by the grief of regret and the pain of transgression, I am healed all the way through the foggy bottom of despair and lifted up into the ridges of delight where the light catches first the morning’s Presence.

“Jesus said to all, ‘If anyone wishes to come after me, you must deny yourself and take up your cross daily and follow me.’” – Luke 9.22

The fine line of my Self seamlessly bleeds into the expanding circle of Christ; the Center sourcing the circumference nourishes me into a fullness that is beyond my comprehension or description; only worship suffices as my reply.
