Reflection for Thursday of the First Week in Lent (March 9, 2017)
Inclusive Text – Reading Esther C:12, 14-16, 23-25 / Psalm 138: 1-2AB, 2CDE-3, 7C-8 / Matthew 7: 7-12
Friends, we are entitled to so much. We know that our Creator God has not forsaken us and has not abandoned us. We know that as we seek to place ourselves in the loving care of our God, how can the God of all look to diminish what God has created. We know the things that are and aren’t good for us. God on God’s part seeks to always remain in conversation with us. I think our part is to just remain faithful to the conversation process. To trust, listen, and pray, as we do to listen more deeply with the ear of our heart. Let us not grow weary and trust that God is always with us. I recently read the book, “The Shack” written by William Paul Young. My friend, this book is a powerful book on the awesome and un-restrictive scope of the power and reach of God’s love. The movie on this book is currently playing in movie theaters. I recommend reading the book first, if you are able to then go see the movie. I promise you, you will not be disappointed as God doesn’t disappoint.
