A Little Reflection

IL714 008-LR

It’s Sunday again; what better day for a little reflection?

Has God been filling your life with blessings?  Has he given you peace in a tough situation?

Well, you see what I mean by reflection…

We spend so much time and energy running ourselves ragged these days, and so much of our lives just rushes by in a sort of blur; we need a moment, so it’s time to seize the moment.  Let’s give thanks to God for all He is doing in our lives, let’s thank Him for all of the ways He’s blessed us.  Let’s recall the great things He has done, like sending His Son to die for our sins.  Let’s take a minute to give Him the praise that is His due for all He is doing in His Body, the Church.  Let’s praise Him for all of those who have come to know Him recently, and for those who continue to grow in their faith, stepping up to lead His people forward to accomplish His purpose.

Let’s take another minute or two to ask Him for the gospel to continue to move forward, that hearts and minds everywhere would be changed, that lives would be given over to Him.

Most of all, let’s take a few moments to sit by His side and ask Him to give us continued strength to go forward in our walk with Him.  Let’s be refreshed in His presence and be renewed in His love.

Hey!  I’m thinking this is going to be an awesome Sunday!

    If I had any chance to sit by “God’s” side, I would have to ask how is so much madness and suffering allowed to stagger our Planet?

      And I hope you’ll share the answer with us!

        I would be happy to share should such a thing ever happen. I’m not holding my breath. Me and God have a somewhat tenuous relationship.
        However and I do pray just about everyday that Jesus would come back. I’d really like to see that and I’m really REALLY curious to hear what Jesus might have to say to all the warmongering “in God we trust” types that are ever so enamored with getting everyone else’s kids murdered or worse than murdered.

    And it was! Your description is just what Sunday is about. Reflection, thankfulness, worship, renewal, refreshment and refueling for another week of service. Thanks for the blessed reminder.
