Chi Rho Reflection for the Week of March 15, 2009
- Chi Rho Reflection for the Week of March 15, 2009
As one of the on-going ministries of Chi Rho
Press, here is a selection from our book of daily
devotions, "Living as the Beloved: One Day at a
Time," by the Rev. Dr. Sandra Bochonok.
Please read the Scripture passage and Dr. Bochonok's
meditation. We hope you will be blessed.
Thank you for forwarding this to your friends.
Valued, precious, needed, loved
"I thank my God in all my remembrance of you."
We need blessing to be spiritually empowered for
healing and wholeness. We need on-going blessing
that helps us hear we are guided by love every step
of our lives. Blessing is something all of us can
give and receive. Giving a blessing is the most
important affirmation we can give someone. It
helps people experience their belovedness.
Years ago I struggled with my own sense of
belovedness and a kind friend heard of my
despair and disillusionment. She sent me
a card that simply said, "Remember these things
you are valued, you are precious, you are needed,
you are loved. Sometimes we just need someone to
tell us, so I'm telling you and I mean it with all
Those gentle and affirming words greatly encouraged
me. I have saved that thoughtful card and display
it where it is easy to see. As a Japanese proverb
says, "One kind word can warm three winter months."
Her words blessed me and gave me inner strength that
continues through today. Perhaps they can also
God, help us remember we are valued, precious,
needed, and loved by you.
Grace and peace,
