Lord you walk with me each and every day,
Often I do not sense your call,
Until I lift my head
from my concerns and distractions
And see you there,
right beside me
And believing in me.
Oh faithful friend
May my heart always be awake to your
Answering your call
Walking with you
through all the days ahead.
July 2010, Alice Springs, N.T., Australia
I connect with the Spirit of God in the world around me, my family and friends, the people I meet in my work and daily life, in music, literature, writing, art, sacred scripture, in prayer and meditation, and most of all in nature and silence.
I draw strength and sustenance from the presence of God in the small everyday happenings of life. God is always present but I however do not always have my eyes, ears or other senses attuned. Each day I need to remind myself to be awake to God's presence. Keeping a Gratitude journal, planting summer vegetables, savouring a home cooked meal with produce from my garden, holding a loved one, sitting with someone experiencing deep emotional, mental or spiritual pain or saying a silent prayer are some of the ways I keep myself open to God's loving presence in my daily life.
In this blog I hope to share with you my experiences of God's deep Spirit leading me in my everyday life to become the person that only God truly knows me to be.
I hope you enjoy my musings.
