Go to Morocco. I'm touched by the personal affection you have with me. I'm becoming more at ease with you, at the same time as I'm becoming more comfortable with myself being in relationship with you.
Every relationship which grows in depth grows through several stages. Our relationship with Jesus is no different.
We first get to know and fall in love with someone by spending time with him or her. We may think we know Jesus well enough, but this "renewed personal encounter" will involved renewing what I know about Jesus.
The daily gospels are a good place to start. Each day, I can get a snapshot of what Jesus said and did. The Jesus with whom I want to grow in a greater friendship today is the same person who talked with sinners, who wasn't afraid of embracing marginal people or poor people.
The Jesus who was passionate in defending those people, against the attacks of the religious people of his day, has the same passionate compassion for me today. Gradually, I can develop a renewed attraction and affection for Jesus.
The more attracted I am to Jesus' style, the more I will want to tell him that. And, in our ongoing, brief conversations at various points in the day, I will make the connections between what I'm drawn to in Jesus and what is going on in my life.
I feel so harsh in comparison today. I snapped at my spouse this morning, before the day really started.
Not much tenderness there. I'm already felt sorry for myself and felt jealous and angry at two people today.
Not much like your ready openness to be stopped and drawn into a difficult situation, with such freedom. I'm growing in the desire to imitate you, even today, Jesus. So, help me be more conscious of how I can do that this afternoon. It was packed. I feel good about parts of it. You know the parts were I choose work over people, or chose what was best for me over working with others. So, now as I get closer to home, let me shift gears and enter my home, with my heart connected with yours.
I know how I can tend to treat my family. And, I use my crazy day as an excuse to do that. Let me leave the day behind and come home with a desire to be more like you in my availability, my patience and my giving myself to be a healer and a consoler in my family. Thanks for your friendship.
I feel that you are at my side and I'm not doing all this alone.
