Most of us have an image of Jesus. For some it's a picture we saw of him when we were children. Some of us see him with long hair and beard tending his sheep. Some of us picture him with a group of children. Some see him as a rugged carpenter or feeding five thousand people. Some see him on the cross, resurrected, or ascending into heaven.
Picture Jesus in your own mind's eye. Study the picture. Examine the picture. Focus on the picture. As you do, the picture may change or it may stay the same. You may see yourself in the picture.
As you watch the picture, look into Jesus' eyes. See the love radiating out of his eyes as he looks back at you. Feel his love. Let him look into your heart, mind, and soul. Feel the depth of his gaze. Rest in that gaze.
As you look at Jesus and see him looking lovingly at you, you may feel a deep sense of peace and safety flow into your body. It starts at your feet and moves up to your head. You feel lighter, brighter, and warmer.
He knows everything and sees everything?yet he still loves you. You feel his peace. Let him love you. Let him look into your heart. Feel his love and peace.
Rest in his gaze. Let him love you. Rest in his warmth. Feel his love. Feel his peace in your soul. Store that picture in your heart. You may look at it as long as you like whenever you like.
