The Jesus prophesy:
The time will come for the bridegroom to be taken away from them
and then they will fast.
On their return from meeting many famous people around the world, Mark Twain’s twenty year old daughter Olivia said to him, ‘Daddy you’ve now met nearly everyone famous except God.’
Meeting God brings us in touch with the deepest ground of who we are, and ensures we live to the full in the present moment. With God we know ourselves truly and deeply.
There is a sense that God is mostly found in solitude which brings us to the still point of peace within us,
the point where we feel a unity with everything and everyone in the world around us.
This takes a willingness to spend time alone with God and his revelation: Jesus
Good and gracious God,
enlighten the secret places of my mind,
embrace the secret places of my desires,
enlarge the secret places of my love,
so that I walk in your light,
act out of your promptings
and live in your love. Amen
Help me to see others as you do.
