Thank you for the expressions of gratitude for last week’s PL.
Amongst them came this one –
I am working today (Good Friday) and it’s busy busy busy!! I’m juggling about eight things at once, never sure whether I’m doing any of them justice. Your verses made me pause, made me think and reminded me of the meaning of Easter …Thank you. x
Prayer needed for the following please –
· Patrick is the Force Chaplain in Surrey. He is as I write many miles away caring for his Dad who is seriously ill. Patrick away from his family, working remotely for Surrey Police and a big heart ache as he watches alongside his Dad’s hospital bed.
· A number of Officers/Staff with very complicated medical issues.
I arrived in my Office on Friday to write the PL, but the good Lord had other plans for me. I was unexpectedly asked to take on a task outside the Office for SP, so I left and no PL written. That is until now – Sunday morning. I am at home with the Marathon on, on the TV, no sound I may add!
From time to time I glance at the screen and see people in wheel chairs, a male without arms, older people, and young people with their lives still ahead of them, ordinary people, the elite runners and people stopping to help each other. Royalty started the race and thousands are cheering everyone on.
On Friday I had a plan for this “Bible Slot”, it has totally changed because of the happenings that took place then and where I find myself today writing to you. My verse is-
· We are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. Heb: 12. 1-3.
No matter where you are, in Sussex, Surrey or the Met in London – as a Christian, you are running a race within your work. No matter how you class yourself, God has called you to the position in which you find yourself, to do this amazing work in caring for people in your community. Royalty – God Himself indeed started your personal race and today – you are still being cheered on.
May you this coming week, know His Enabling Power at work in you.
My Prayers are with you all, daily.
