Peace and Grace ....

 

So we have entered another New Year!  What would we wish for in 2017?  What will we pray for?  Will we 'delight' n the law of God, as we read in today's Psalm?  Will we let God's grace fill us so that we can be 'light' to the nations?  Will e thank him and say 'Here I am, Lord' or take Jonah's path and say no, not me Lord, ask someone else?


Many people from across the Diocese will have gathered here this weekend to see what part they can play in the work being done to eradicate human trafficking and modern slavery.  They are saying 'here I am Lord - send me'.  Through them peace may come back into many lives, light will return.


God's Law - in which we delight - calls us to a way of life that is counter-culture.  It places certain restraints and demands on us, but these are not burdens when undertaken with God's grace to guide, support and lead us.  asking God to do this, as we try to do his work and answer his call, guarantees His response, for as we are generous - with our time and talents - God will always be even more generous, for he is never outdone in generosity and He never withholds his grace and blessing. 

 


 


   

 



Let nothing trouble you

let nothing frighten you

everything passes,

God never changes

patience obtains all

whoever has God wants for nothing

God alone is sufficient.

                                                  

                                                       St Teresa of Auila
