A Quiet Place

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

May 26, A.D. 2001

Acts 1:1-11
Psalm 47:2-3,6-9
Ephesians 1:17-23
Luke 24:46-53

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

If we stop for a moment today and look around we will see we cannot stop time, that the things around us keep moving. The sun rises, the wind blows, everything in nature is moving and has a purpose. In today's Scriptures there is constructive criticism given for a purpose; and taken very well, was used for growth. The psalmist speaks of God as king over all the earth. This king is so in love with what He created that He sent his only Son to save it.

In St. John's Gospel, Jesus the Son, says we should ask the Father when we're in need and it will be given to us. Yes, we've been given more than we can see. Praying in thanksgiving and recognizing what God has given us makes our joy complete.

To weave these blessings from God into our lives everyday, we become a people with purpose and mission -- to love one another, to serve each other in good times and in bad. Life should never be taken for granted. We should not worry about the past or be anxious about the future, for this we can do nothing about. It is the present moment that we find Jesus and our joy is in the journey of each step we take.
