The Jesus in Me Seeks the Jesus in You©

Updated: Jan 31, 2023

Dear Father, Holy Creator

Help us see the mysterious masterpieces

and beauty of all creation.


Replace fear and suspicion of persons I don't understand

with respect for the Artist of all.


With listening ears,

may I open my heart to sacred stories

praying stories open doors revealing light

illuminating strangers on the way to Christ-like friendship.


Sharing memories

reveals glimpses

why persons

who appear radically different

think

feel

act

believe

the ways they do.


Why long for deep connection with persons who make me uncomfortable?


The Jesus in me seeks the Jesus in you.


When I stop long enough to care about persons I can't figure out,

Making Whole

Presence

Invites me

to

Wonder.


We discover missing pieces.


Each new friend we make

multiplies like diamonds

infused with Son-light

sparkling across water

tainted by societal currents

of unexamined

dysfunction

categorization.


Tears once carried release.


Each new friend becomes a drop of healing turning water into wine.


Can't figure out self...

Can't figure you out...

Can't figure out the Artist...


Prayer and Holy Scriptures

Breathe

Holy conversation

We become vessels of reconciling grace.


The Jesus in me seeks the Jesus in you.


Figuring and discomfort

Replaced by

Relating and adventure.


The mystery of the Creator made known in Jesus of Nazareth

more than enough

to help us

seek the mystery

becoming whole.


Dear Holy One

Revealer of all


Creates

Connection

Communion

Community


Love


We cooperate with the Artist

Painting new life

Born

to

seek


Yes, the Jesus in you seeks the Jesus in me.
