Julian of Norwich on making space in our heart for God

Even though I’m smack in the thick of a bigger, more, faster world, as many of you who are reading this are, I find myself increasingly drawn over time—to a life where “hurry and more” is not the norm of life.

Where in fact, “hurry and more” is assaulting. Where having, wanting, striving for more, crowds out space in our heart for God. 

I wonder, to those who had or are still going through lockdown due to the COVID19 pandemic, as you look out from the confines of your window, are you re-thinking about what’s really important in your life?

I read this lovely prose of Julian Of Norwich from one of my daily devotional resources, LECTIO365.

And thought it encapsulates the yearning of my soul to be rested in the presence of God.

These words from Julian of Norwich reminded me of making space in our hearts for God.

I was always quite sure of myself. But, now…

I was always quite sure of myself. Of my perception and my judgement.

In the recent season, I’m not so sure. 

What do I know?

What can I see?

How do I know what the person has gone through?

What God has in mind for that person?

I can only see the dots in my finite view. 

Not the millions of dots that God had painted when he created the person; when he created me.

So what do I know?

Except that God is the Master Creator.

Except that He is God, God, God.

“Help us not to be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, to present our requests to you.”

– prayer from Philippians 4:6

Lord, today I bring to you my worries and anxieties. Thank you for the promise of your peace which transcends all understanding. Amen.
