Staying Close To What Matters

Reflections for contemplative living

We are called to decrease, allowing Him to increase. I’ve found that there is little I can do to make this happen except to surrender, stay close to Jesus’ scripture and prayer. This is truly what matters in life.

By staying with Jesus, I began to learn, from His words, gestures and even His gaze, what really mattered to Him while on earth and what Our Father sent him to proclaim. This is what fuels the flames of the Spirit to rise within.

How many times today did you stray away?

Jesus, you constantly draw me to You. Let me hear the sound of Your voice and respond to the call.
