As we closed up our series, Hearing in the Noise, we thought about the way Jesus talks about blessedness. It seems that Jesus saw blessedness as a state of being.
When we are prompted to search deep within ourselves, we may find, surprisingly, that happiness comes when we sense how inextricably linked to God we are. In other words, we are blessed, not when we get things, but when we experience that we are the delight of God’s life, that God knows us at a soul level and that we have a real role to play in God’s kingdom coming to earth.
This is a prayer we shared on that subject on Sunday, February 2.
