Reflection of the Week - 14 January 2020

Posted in Faith

There are times when I stand in awe

Amazed at the work of your hands

The wondrous beauty of the skies

The ferocious power of your creation


Psalm 40:4-5

Blessed is the one
   who trusts in the LORD,
who does not look to the proud,
   to those who turn aside to false gods.

Many, LORD my God,
   are the wonders you have done,
   the things you planned for us.
None can compare with you;
   were I to speak and tell of your deeds,
   they would be too many to declare.


Lord God,

in this time of difficulty

where fires ravage our country

and people rebuild homes and lives

May I still be reminded to trust in You

and put all hope in You and no other gods

Knowing how much God has given for me,

I will be generous in giving to others

Of my time, my money, my thoughts and prayers.

At times when life is crushing and the pain is too much,

when they may have lost faith in God,

may I encourage them with the Psalmists words,

reminding them of His marvellous ways,

and how He is worthy of all their trust.
