The Whole of You!

How can the Infinite God of earth and heaven come into my small heart?

How can I invite to enter One who is already there, one who is already Present in all things?

Yet, even heaven and earth cannot contain You, any more than my heart can. It is not possible to limit One Who fills everything.

But to say You are everywhere, Lord, is not to say that everywhere has all of You. Though You fill all things, You do not of necessity give them all of Yourself.

So I will pray that my heart, where You already have a foothold, may receive more and more of You, until one day the whole of me will be filled with the Whole of You!

 

Augustine
