This week's reflection reminds us of the real story of Christmas.
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
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.
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.

As you celebrate this Christmas, and in the coming weeks, I invite you to remember in your prayers the South Australian communities who have been devastated by the bushfire events of the past few days which have shocked us all.
This week's reflection brings a message about Australia Day.
