12 Reflections on Paintings for Faith Formation – Painting #11 “Burning Bush”, and Reflection #11 “The Burning Bush”.

The Burning Bush

The sacred fire, God’s miraculous energy,

Illumination of God’s presence,

I am rooted in the depth of the divine energy,

Ever burning divine presence around me,

The burning bush is within me also,

God’s indwelling presence.

The flames of the spirit of God ever shines and purifying,

The fiery light that transforms me into a burning tree,

Rooted in God and emanate the light of love.

Meditation is being rooted and burn with the fire of God.
