Prayer Letter from Alice

11.09.2020

Hello Everyone,

Today as I write, it is Emergency Services Day. Earlier I wrote the following on Twitter, I would like to share it with you; as I truly mean what I have written:

We are so Blest to have our wonderful Emergency Services. And the families who allow their loved ones; to leave home to care for others; above and beyond the call of duty on numerous occasions. Thank you to all involved. Truly appreciated.

I trust that you are continuing to survive the tough times we find ourselves in.

Earlier this week the radio was on in the background as I was cooking cakes for the various Police Teams I visit as a Chaplain. I heard the following statement:

We are all in this Covid-19 Storm, but each one of us is in our own boat.

That really spoke to me. Every one of us is sailing our own boat but this “Storm” has now hit us.

I believe it is true to say that I sensed we would be in this for about a month when Lockdown started and then it would all go away and we would get back to normal.

With what is now “Normal” and what becomes eventually to be “Normal”, one verse keeps popping into my thinking.

It is a verse that was relatively easy to hold on to pre-March of this year, but now; somehow, I need even more Faith it would seem, as I ponder on it. But – He is still the same God, then, now and in the future:

He is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to His Power at work within us” Eph 3.20.

May you know your security in these coming days, no matter where your boat takes you in the rough seas that are all around you.

Travel Safely In His Grip.

Alice.
