This week's reflection offers a prayer to clear the soul from clutter.
Reflection of the Week - 4 February 2020
Posted in Faith
Often, we forget that this life is temporary.
We forget to 'fix our eyes on what is unseen',
seeking pleasures from this world
which will only pass away.
“Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?
Lord, please remind me to put you first
Following you can be hard - as hard as 'taking up our cross daily'
Give me your strength so that I will be able to find life
eternal life with you.
May I not be so concerned with gaining the whole world,
following the trends around me,
but may I be concerned with following you more closely
