13 The Contemplative Calling mp3 Instrumental version


Jesus said
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened,
and I will give you rest.

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
for I am gentle and humble in heart,
and you will find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."


George Macdonald said that half the misery in the world
comes from people trying to look,
or to be,
what they are not.
We are never more fully what God has designed us to be
than when,
like Mary of Bethany,
we devote ourselves to being at Jesus’ feet:

“Mary has chosen the better part,
and it will not be taken from her.”


The true contemplative
spends time apart
on behalf of the many,
bringing those
who either cannot
or will not
come for themselves;
they are thus
never more in company
than when they appear
most on their own.



This is the time
and this is the place
to receive
the flow of your leading


when your thoughts glide in
on the high tide of your grace,
one idea intersecting
and interconnecting
with another.


Let the stillness hold me.




Confirm and reaffirm this contemplative calling.
Expand my heart to embrace your grace
until your love
becomes the air that I breathe
and the peace I exude.



Lord, you are happy that I am here,
and because You are who You are,
open the deep places of my heart

first to explore Your love,
and then to abide much more
in that realm
