Let me know myself and know you

Contemplation is about seeking to be still in the presence of God. It is about allowing yourself to recognise the presence of the Living Jesus within and beyond yourself. 

It’s about being still. It’s about opening yourself before God. It’s about finding the space to fix your eyes, your ears and your mind on Him.

And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. 

Hebrews 12:1-2 (NLT)

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him.

Psalm 37:1 (NLT)

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!

Isaiah 26:3 (NLT)

“Lord Jesus, let me know myself and know You,
And desire nothing save only You.”

St Augustine of Hippo
