Thank you for the replies to last week’s Prayer Letter. One reply was as follows-
“Thanks for that song. I love that one too and it was great to walk into that today … particularly as I hit the ground running!!”
The writer went on to say-
“I had had a couple of shifts where I didn’t want to go to work … I’ve never felt like that before and didn’t want to feel it again! In addition, I found me overreacting when I was dealing with my children, arguing with each other … looking back I believe it is down to the stress I found myself under. I ended up going sick a day later with a migraine, again believing it to be down to the stress of the job”.
I can imagine a number of you will understand the feelings expressed in the above.
So I believe it is right to share the following with you below………..
On Sunday the visiting Speaker in our Church introduced his Sermon with the verse in Matthew, where Jesus calls His first Disciples. The verse starts with the word “Come”. I stayed with that word for a little while; eventually catching up with the speaker’s thoughts a few moments later. It is such a gentle, caring word, “Come”. Another verse in Matthew says “Come unto me, all you that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest”. 11.29.
With this I am going to leave a part of last week’s Chorus. “Lord I come before Your Throne of Grace; I find rest in your Presence and fullness of joy”.
I am inviting/encouraging you to take time out to “Come” and spend time with the Lord, in what I know is a very busy lifestyle that you lead. May you know His Peace, as you sit with Him.
God Bless you.
