What on earth would that look and feel like?
For lent in recent years I have taken something up as well as or instead of giving something up. This year, as in a previous year, I am taking some time for prayer at the beginning of the day (Don’t tell the Bishop). One morning last week, I was sitting in our prayer room, it has a large window by one of the seats (electric recliner, well you have to be comfortable don’t you!?) and I looked out of the window. Instead of “seeing” outside, I noticed my reflection in the window (I don’t think I was being narcissistic). My day started with the reflection and connection, “How does God see me?” which led to “How might I live, think about myself, see and treat myself, if I did it through God’s eyes”?
So, how does God see you and I? Difficult not to start by being trite. On the day, before I started to answer my reflection question, I thought I would ask God rather than just answer. So far, I am sensing an affirmation of who I am, God who believes in me, more than I believe in God.
I look forward to further answers during the rest of lent. Hopefully it will make up for the early mornings!!
