Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Hebrews 12:18 -24
Human beings are designed primarily to be the temple of the Living God. Scripture reminds us time and again that the Holy Spirit of God seeks to be at home within us; the more place we give God in our lives, the more present Life, and Light, and Love become to us. Sitting in silent adoration in a church, pausing on a pathway to behold sunshine glinting off freshly fallen snow, listening to the thrum of our rushing blood and gentle breathing in the night watches – these and many other moments in our life provide pause to ponder God’s gracefull love moving within, around, and through our beings. When I ponder the love of God within me as a temple of the Holy Spirit, then I am able to reach out in peace to others, and consider his love at work in them as well. Today, will I pause to ponder the love of God within me, within others? Holy Spirit, help me ponder your love in your temple.
We ponder your love in the midst of your temple. Your name, O God, like your praise, reaches to the ends of the earth. (Psalm 48:9)
You have made us for yourself, O Lord,
and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.
Saint Augustine of Hippo
