Daily Meditation – Finding God in the Simple and Common Circumstances

[Consider the following and seek to find God today in even the most common and ordinary circumstances.]

“We’re searching for something spectacular to convince us of God’s presence. Yet it is the simple things, common events and common longings, where God may be found.”

Daily Meditation – Give Better Than You Get

- Consider your current dislikes of others and examine your own part. In doing so, apply the peace and direct guidance indicated below.

If possible, on your part, live at peace with all. Beloved, do not look for revenge but leave room for the wrath; for it is written, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord." Rather, "if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals upon his head." Do not be conquered by evil but conquer evil with good.

- Romans 12: 18-21

Daily Meditation - Letting Go

On the road of life, we inevitably hit the pot holes of life that can destroy us if we let them. This destruction is done via holding on to unforgiveness, certain attachments, or just our own selfish agenda. In this regard, consider the story of the monkey traps.

In the jungles of Africa, monkeys are captured alive and unharmed via the use of a heavy bottle with a long neck and sweet-smelling nuts within. Attracted by the scent of the nuts, the monkey sticks his hand in the bottle and grabs the nuts. Unwilling to let go of the nuts, the monkey is unable to remove his hand from the bottle. Subsequently, with the bottle being so heavy, the monkey is trapped since he can’t carry the bottle. Again, all that is needed is to just let go of the nuts. Instead, the monkey holds onto the nuts in exchange for a life of captivity.

- Let Go and Let God!

Daily Meditation – God's loving forgiveness

“It is our forgiveness of one another that makes the love of Jesus for us manifest in our lives, for in forgiving one another we act towards one another as He has acted towards us.”

- Thomas Merton

Daily Meditation - Some Definite Service

God has created me to do Him some definite service
He has committed some work to me which He has
not committed to another
I have my mission
I may never know it in this life but I shall be told it
in the next
I am a link in a chain
a bond of connection between persons
He has not created me for naught
I shall do good - I shall do His work
I shall be an angel of peace
a preacher of truth in my own place while not
intending it if I do but keep His commandments
Therefore I will trust Him whatever I am, I can never
be thrown away
If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him in
perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him
If I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him
He does nothing in vain
He knows what he is about
He may take away my friends
He may throw me among strangers
He may make me feel desolate
make my spirits sink
hide my future from me – still He knows what He is
about.

- Cardinal John Henry Newman
