Seeking


12 February 2024

The Lord said to Moses, “Write these words, for in accordance with these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel.”

Exodus 34:27

[Excerpted from Of Water and Spirit Sharing Services, Herald House, p.5]

A blessing for seeking
For courage enough to enter in
To the deep mystery places
Which humble us into realizing
All we do not, cannot know

For wisdom enough to follow
The traces of light in the darkness
To not let fear of night stall us
From moving through the moments
That are forming us unseen

For strength of heart
To walk boldly forward
When the path ahead is uncertain
And safety tempts us with return
To what we already think we know

For vulnerability along the way
That we may truly feel the path we’re on
That we may be open to what it brings
That we may not flee from perceived dangers
That we may be changed in the walking

A blessing for seeking
A blessing for the way the seeking itself
Is the One we seek.

Prayer Phrase

“…he will have compassion according to the abundance of his steadfast love” (Lamentations 3:32).

Spiritual Practice

Breathing God’s Compassion

Light a candle and sit quietly, reflecting on the fire and light of God. Pay attention to your breathing and let it become calmer and deeper as you focus on God’s presence. Ask God to breathe in you. Image each breath carrying the light of God into your lungs, bloodstream, and every cell in your body until God’s Spirit fills you. Now imagine breathing out God’s compassion and grace each time you exhale. Pray to have the Spirit of Christ radiate from your life like the gentle flame of a candle.
