Every day, we need to go to our quiet place...

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

June 19, A.D. 2005

Jeremiah 20:10-13
Psalm 69:8-10,14,17,33-35
Romans 5:12-15
Matthew 6:24-34

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

What I say to you in the darkness, proclaim on the housetops.

O Lord we long and pray to ³see,² You, our Way, and You whisper into this darkness of our wanderings to en-lighten the straight path before us."Fear no one. Speak in the light what I whisper to you in the darkness; proclaim it on the housetops."You instruct us. These are the sure ways to acknowledge You to others, and this is how we are acknowledged by You to the Father.

Yes, Lord, Your whisperings, perfect Light, grace and goodness, yield the desired fruit of souls for Your Harvest and bestow the holy Cross of rejection for the bearer of Truth we witness today with Jeremiah, David, Paul and You.

O Precious beLoved Lord, heart of our hearts, our natural temptation to flee our cross is tempered with Your garden example: "Not my will, but thy will be done.'"

Help us Lord, to remain steadfast in the echo of Your fiat to the Father -- we who will see You in our own im-Passioned housetop speaking and acknowledge us in You.

- Mary Williams
