Spirituality

Posted on May 9, 2022 at 7:15 AM

Years ago I used to think of spirituality as something reserved for the mystics, saints and religious who seem to have that special, close relationship with God. It seemed so out of reach for an ordinary person like me. I also associated spirituality with certain religions, with definite rules and guidelines for living.

 

 

These days I believe that while these things are true in part, spirituality is more, and definitely within reach of all persons. When someone strives toward an extra awareness of life and an enhanced relationship with God, they can become more spiritual, even in the midst of human brokenness and limitations. It seems to be about the way we live our lives and interpret the world and the sacred mystery which surrounds us.

 

We can have spirituality in our work when we see our efforts as more than just making a living but a real opportunity for service to others. Spirituality is shown in our responsibility to care for all human life and nature as gifts from God. It is shown in the way we spend our time - when we live our lives with purpose and without wastefulness.

 

I believe that our spirituality can be strengthened when we become aware of what is sacred and by improving our relationship with Jesus. We can do this by participation in church celebrations, by quality reading and studying, and by a good choice of friends who can help us become more spiritual. It may take some effort, but a deeper spirituality is achievable.

 

For the past several months, I have been working on my spirituality. I am enhancing my knowledge of Scripture by daily readings in the Bible In A Year series. I have tried to immerse myself in the special celebrations of the Church, most recently during Lent and Easter. And perhaps most importantly, I have attempted to enhance my prayer life. This last item hasn’t gone as well as I had hoped… I am so easily distracted by my responsibilities and life events that keep cropping up. It’s been a struggle to find quality time to really focus on prayer and my personal relationship with Jesus. But I am not giving up - I will keep trying to work on prayer, every day.

 

I encourage you to think this week about how you might be able to improve your own spirituality. Perhaps there something you have been meaning to read. Maybe there is a religious event that you would like to attend. Or maybe you just need to sit down and give a little time to God. I pray you can find something to do this week to bring a spiritual blessing upon your life.

 

 

 

Have a blessed Monday!
