Our Weekly Meditation

Hello God,

I know you are there, but where am I?

Have I been so busy that I can’t feel you?

When I connect is when I read or attend Sunday service or gather with friends in a bible study.

I was reading Richard Rohr’s daily meditation on May 28th and it hit me when he was discussing the English phrase “Mind the Gap”.

Well, I have fallen into that gap. I have not been mindful. I have not taken a moment or two to breathe in the Holy Spirit. Just before writing this I thought, I don’t really have time now.  But how can I not stop and fill my head and heart with thought and discernment of what is truly keeping me going. The Love of God.

So, my thoughts are, “Mind the Gap” and fill it with the Holy Spirit. It doesn’t take long and makes you feel so much better.

Now, I can continue on my busy day, but feeling connected and loved.

Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit” (John 20:21–22).

Filling the Gap,

Palmer Marrin
