We become contemplatives when God discovers Himself in us.
– Thomas Merton
I will describe how I think God discovers Himself in me. I recognize that as soon as I try to take control, it is no longer God within me. I remain open to allowing this to change. I pray that God awakens me to what was always within me.
I QUIET myself.
I SURRENDER myself to God.
I ASK God to direct my life.
I ALLOW Myself to be open to what God brings across my path.
I TRUST that God will bring to me what I need.
I recognize that God is acting within me when I have an INNER PEACE.
