Glimpses of Glory in Lent - Day 7

'Keep me open-minded
Keep me in mind'
(Important Commission - Stephen Cherry)

These two lines from today's meditation in 'Barefoot Prayers' have remained with me all day. I have been reflecting on the link made between being kept in God's mind and being open-minded. Is it because I am held by God that I am able to look beyond myself to others and take seriously their ideas and opinions.

I remember the first time I had enough confidence to jump off a diving board into a swimming pool. I did it because the PE teacher had the patience to encourage me and stay with me, even to hold my hand as I jumped.

I can risk being open to others because I am held safely by God.
