The ancient tradition of lectio divina has offered Christians a way of seeking and experiencing God in creation. We often turn to scripture when we want to know God more deeply, using lectio divina as a way of praying the scriptures, allowing the words to speak to us in new and revelatory ways. If we turn to scripture because it shows us the truth of God's divine movement in creation, then it follows that we should also feel free to seek that truth in our own lives and experiences.
The lectio divina process is applicable to more than scripture.
Before you return to your activities, spend a few more moments in meditation. If you keep a journal, make some notes about this time with God. When you are finished, go in God's peace and love.
