Lent begins on Wednesday 14 February, providing an opportunity to fast and take stock of your relationship with God over 40 days. This article includes ideas to get you started if you are thinking about fasting this Lent.
Reflection of the week
Posted in Faith
Sometimes it feels like God is not doing anything, and when we pray, we are met with an awful silence. The Jews must have felt like that, as for ages they looked in vain for their coming Messiah.
“But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son…” – Galatians 4:4
“Then they cried to the Lord in their need, and he rescued them from their distress, and he led them along the right way...” – Psalm 107:6
Let us use the gift of hindsight, looking back on the wisdom of God's timing and actions. Knowing this, let us walk by faith in our present.
Lord, your timing is always perfect, even though we don't always recognise it at the time. You see with an eternal perspective, and are motivated by love.
