Who hasn’t from time to time said, “There but for the grace of God go I” after we read or hear about somebody getting in or having trouble? Another one we used to say when I was younger — “God looks after drunks and fools.” That was usually whispered by me after somehow I found my way home after having way too much fun.
There are those who don’t believe that God doesn’t intervene in our individual lives, but I’m not one of those. I’ve survived too many close calls and been the recipient of too many miracles. I suggest that we read the traces of God in our lives, and try to learn from them. We may wake up by the “still waters” or find ourselves engulfed in the “flames of trouble,” but there is one thing for certain – we are never alone, and never without help.
When we meditate we seek the traces of God in our lives, and to read the way we are to travel.
