God is with me, but more,
God is within me, giving me existence.
Let me dwell for a moment on God's life-giving presence
in my body, my mind, my heart
and in the whole of my life.
Daily Prayer - 2013-10-29
God is with me, but more,
Lord, guide me always
to do your holy will
knowing that your strength
will carry me through.
There is a time and place for everything, as the saying goes.
Lord, grant that I may always desire
to spend time in your presence.
To hear your call.
Jesus said, "What is the kingdom of God like? And to what should I compare it? It is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in the garden; it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches." And again he said, "To what should I compare the kingdom of God? It is like yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour until all of it was leavened."
Some thoughts on today's scripture
- The kingdom of God is like a small seed that grew and became a large tree. The tree breathes in and out through its leaves and roots. Could I take a little time to breathe in and out, aware of the mysterious source of my life.
- Think of the second image of the kingdom of God. “It is like the yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour until it was all leavened.” How does that connect with me?
- Could it be that the simplest acts of kindness and service that I have experienced from others are truly the kingdom of God growing in the world? And that the simplest acts of kindness and service that I have offered to others are truly the kingdom of God growing in my heart? The growth is slow and undramatic. The source of kindness and service is like the source of nature’s power – simple, humble and mysterious.
Lord, you have engraved my name
on the palm of your hand.
Even if others forget me,
you never will.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
As it was in the beginning,
is now and ever shall be,
world without end.
