I trust you are well. So much illness and at last it has hit me. Very many thanks Bert for coming to the rescue last week, I am on the mend. Richard Wurmbrand to whom Bert referred; visited our Church in Woking many years ago. I can still recall the impact he had on me.
On Sunday last, I listened on line to our Pastor. He spoke about the Road to Emmaus. The two unnamed Disciples so emersed in sadness because their world had come to an end with the Crucifixion of their Lord and Saviour – so much so that they did not recognise Jesus as He came alongside them and walked with them.
There are times when so much is wrong in our lives, we cannot see that Jesus is in there with us.
I can see through my Chaplaincy Work within Surrey Police some of the battles you are in, I can see in the Press and the Media – the constant onslaught of negativity you experience.
Very difficult to believe He is there…
But it was when the Disciples welcomed the Stranger in to have a meal with them, it again became obvious to them “Jesus was with them”.
I have welcomed Jesus into my life again during these days of illness, knowing though – truly knowing deep down, He has never left me.
“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you” 1Peter.5.7
He will sit with you today…
