Always with me

The structure of a labyrinth leads you on a journey to a destination, through winding ways and twisting tracks, but always onwards. Many people use a labyrinth to think about a worry, to think through a turning point in their lives, or just to simply wander through in silence and listen for God’s voice.

Starting the reflection.

Begin by reading slowly these words from Psalm 139.

“You have searched me, Lord, and you know me.

You know when I sit and when I rise;

You perceive my thoughts from afar.”


Say this short prayer.


I’m not sure how I feel about this,

You knowing everything I do and say

even before I do it or say it.

It feels safer to pull up the drawbridge,

to keep you safely at a distance,

Because, what if you see the real me,

And you don’t like me?

But then, to be fully known and fully loved…

Maybe that’s worth the risk?


Walking the labyrinth

Enter the labyrinth at the bottom left. Walk through the labyrinth either tracing the way with your finger or you may wish to print it out and colour it in. As you wander, coming closer into the centre with each turn, imagine that God is stripping away all of your protective layers, allowing yourself to be known. Enjoy!
