Reflection 17th February 2013

Meditation

Let nothing disturb you.
Let nothing frighten you.
All things are changing.
God alone is changeless.
Patience attains the goal.
One who has God
Lacks nothing.
God alone fills our needs.

Saint Teresa of Avila


The presence of God within me
is the only stable center
of my life.
With it
there is nothing
that can destroy me or
leave me bereft,
confound or defeat me.
It is only a matter
of reaching out.
Correction:
There is nothing to reach for at all.
God is already there.
Celebrate.

Joan Chittister
