Reflection for  January


'I have calmed and quietened my soul,
like a weaned child on its mother's breast.'
Psalm 131:2

Loving God, I come to you

with all my anxieties and burdens,
the pressures I face
and the things I am ashamed of.

Enfold me in your love
and keep me close to you.

I have loved you with an unquenchable love.
I am always ready to pick you up tenderly
and comfort you,
like a mother holding her baby.
you are safe and loved,
securely held
yet free.

'God gently wraps us in his love, as in a garment.'
Julian of Norwich (c.1342 - 1413)
