Nada

Imitation of Christ

“Consider nothing great, nothing acceptable to you, unless it be God Himself, or of God.”

How does this apply to ME? What types of things am I struggling for in my own flesh? With God as my co-pilot perhaps, but certainly NOT with Him in the drivers seat?

This reminds me of St. John of the Cross’ ‘Nada Path’. I have my own Mt. Carmel to climb. I look at “clean and organized home” and have to say “nope…not this”. I look at “health and fitness” and have to chuck that to the side also. “Perfect kids that always behave properly?”  Ha…absolutely not.  All these things as good as they are in and of themselves mean nothing. Wasting my efforts on any of these is a big waste of my time and energy…that leaves me feeling nothing but anxious and totally drained. However…I am told to seek first the kingdom and then all these things shall be added on to me.

I love you Jesus…and seek You and not Your hand. You are loving and extremely generous…but may that not be the basis of our relationship.
