I received the following this week from a recipient of the PL. Although written a few weeks ago, God’s Word is always in season.
“At the start of the year, I felt God gave me 3 verses to focus on during the year. ‘Be still and know that I am God’ was one of the verses.
I hurt my back in November and am on restricted duties as a result. It has been a long slow process waiting to get a proper assessment and physio.
I have been feeling particularly discouraged this week. Your prayer letter reminded me of God’s encouragement to me at the start of the year, and was just what I needed to hear.“
“Be still and know that I am God”.
I read the following this week. On Friday when storm Eunice was making herself felt, in many parts of the UK, a Vicar in his large village opened up the doors where his Church met and invited people in. The village was mainly without electricity, but it was still working in the Church building. People came in with their flat mobiles, partook of hot drinks, food and warmth besides feeling good meeting up, with others.
The Vicar was told that the reason people came in was, and I quote: “Because the lights were on”.
“Because the lights were on”
That spoke volumes to me.
It may not be our Church buildings that encourage people to visit. However, Jesus has said about us in Mathew 5: 14 and 16
“You are the light of the world”
I pray that needy people will be drawn to you this coming week, so that you can share the Light that is in you because of Your Saviour.
In Him. His Love
