“Are you the one we should be looking for? Or must we wait for someone else?” (Mt. 11:2-3)
When John was in prison, he was aware of Jesus’ ministry. He sent some of his companions to ask Jesus “Are you the one?”
I hope you have settled into your Sacred Space, taking time to ponder the question, “Who Is It That You Look For?”
For Week 2, here are a few suggestions:
Find a comfortable pair of shoes and get ready. Some of the terrain you walk upon might be a bit unstable; don’t lose heart. Unexpected events and the strain of life can wear you down and this will have a long-term effect on the state of one’s Spirit that is unsettled or disturbed.
Remember, there is wonder and joy ahead; even if you have to endure a few trials along the way, it won’t last.
Who Is It That You Look For? Is it I, He?
I trudged the road of destiny through every rock and toil.
I felt my face perspire amidst the sandy soil.
My journey was long and hard, and yet through it all,
I did it for humanity; I did it for you all!
You came upon my burial site, a place that was not my own.
You did not believe in me when I traveled to your home. (DMOL, Patricia A. Zorn, pg. 57)
Maintain your spiritual foundation and your faith. “It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold.” (1Pt. 1:6-8)
Jesus said, “I was condemned because of who I was. I wanted man to see me, but he/she did not have eyes to see or ears to hear.” (DMOL, pg. 17)
