Meditation — June 12, 2018

Posted on Tuesday, June 12th, 2018

Scripture: “You are the light of the world. A city built on a hilltop cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp to put it under a tub; they put it on the lamp-stand where it shines for everyone in the house. In the same way your light must shine in people’s sight, so that seeing your good works, they may give praise to your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

Prayer: I must be reminded at times that I am the light of the world, especially on this gray, cloudy morning, where the surf, standing solitary at the edge of the sand, was in turbulence. Bring me your light, Lord, in those I encounter today.

Response: When did you last light your lamp? Was it last evening with a close friend among other old friends, exchanging deep thoughts that reflected your collective journeys of the heart? Consider that in such company you all contribute to what becomes a blazing light shared by even those warmed on the periphery of the gathering.

Sitting where you are, do you see that the clouds are dissipating and through them the faint light of morning is filtering through. So, it is with you as you reflect upon the scripture and as the words of Jesus reverberate in your heart just now.

The Lord’s presence is manifest as you sit in stillness, seeking His holy name in your life, and especially on this day that is opening for you in a new dawn. Praise, the Lord!

All for this morning.
