The second of our meditations, this time from the character or viewpoint of Joseph.
The meditation is shared below.
You may can hear the audio version here.
can you imagine
for a little while
what is was like for Joseph?
A righteous man
a kind man
a person that would never want to embarrass anybody
definitely not Mary
even if he felt incredibly hurt
or let down
How do you react if you feel let down by someone?
Do you seek revenge?
or do you try to keep things quiet and dignified?
talk to God about that
People must have thought Joseph was daft
maybe a bit of a mug
believing a ridiculous story
how did he cope with that pressure?
how do you cope with the pressure
of others talking about you?
others laughing at you?
others not trusting you?
Joseph had his own visitation
from an angel
in a dream
with that message to say Mary was telling the truth
God spoke right into Joseph’s life
And Jospeh listened and acted accordingly
Do you believe God speaks today?
Do you think God would want to speak to you?
Have you had a dream and wondered
whether it was God?
Have you listened … or dismissed it?
thinking it to be your imagination?
When was the last time
you gave yourself a chance to hear God?
ask God to speak ….
what do you hear?
