“Jean Pierre de Caussade, an 18th Century French Jesuit wrote that Christ comes to us in a fresh way every moment, every day. We don’t have to separate the secular from the sacred. Christ is alive right now, in all of it.”
Those sentences are so rich. I long to be able to pause and savour every moment; to be able to sense just what Jean Pierre describes.
I think back through today and wonder how it might have progressed differently if I had paused to recognise the presence of Jesus in every moment.
I wonder: Could I do this for just one day? Could I do this tomorrow?
I am awestruck when I imagine the difference it would make to those around me: my family, my coworkers, the strangers I meet, everyone.
Tomorrow is a new day. And, when tomorrow comes, each hour, each moment will be a new moment. A moment with a fresh opportunity to be still and know that Jesus is in our midst.
