Honest Christianity: live like how God sees me

DSCF0514

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 Gods 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!!

  1. Hope your early mornings are fruitful Paul. Rather you than me! I did get up early today but that was for hospital so don’t think that counts with regards to lent!

    I think your reflection of: “How might I live, think about myself, see and treat myself, if I did it through God’s eyes”? is a really powerful one, and something it would definitly do me good to reflect on too…just not so early in the morning and sadly without an electric recliner!
