This week's reflection reminds us to trust in the Spirit for guidance
Reflection of the Week - 23 January 2019
Posted in Faith
At any time of the day or night we can call on Jesus. He is always waiting, listening for our call. What a wonderful blessing. No phone needed, no direct message via social media, no e-mails, just a whisper.
It is so easy to get caught up with the trappings of wealth in this life. Grant, O Lord, that I may be free from greed and selfishness. Remind me that the best things in life are free. Love, laughter, caring and sharing.
Where do I sense hope, encouragement, and growth areas in my life? By looking back over the last few months, I may be able to see which activities and occasions have produced rich fruit. If I do notice such areas, I will determine to give those areas both time and space in the future.
Mark 16:15-18 Jesus said to the disciples, "Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation."
How has God's Word moved me? Has it left me cold? Has it consoled me or moved me to act in a new way? I imagine Jesus standing or sitting beside me, I turn and share my feelings with him. I thank God for these few moments we have spent alone together and for any insights I may have been given.
