Minute Meditations

God’s Dream for Our Lives

man standing in grasses.

We may discover that we are being led by God to discover the path to blessedness in the wilderness of uncertainty. A voice of out nowhere might call us to see ourselves for the first time, and as this new self-awareness unfolds, we discover God’s dream for us and the path that will bring us and those around us to authentic and everlasting joy. In whatever way God’s call comes, it eventually unites the inner and outer journeys, and what is private is eventually revealed in the challenges of daily life and social involvement.

  1. Lord Jesus Christ, let your light dispel the darkness that what is lost may be found and restored. Let your light shine through us that others may see your love and truth and find hope and peace in you. May we never doubt your love nor take for granted the mercy you have shown to us. Fill us with your transforming love that we may be merciful as you are merciful. Amen.
