‘According to the grace God has given to me’ 1Cor.3:10
‘The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness and God's rest was given to them from far away.’Jer.31:1-6
Sit still for a moment, being open to the grace of God given to you now.
Let the blessing of God's presence be made known to you in a fuller way as you notice your own lack and need.
‘He brings streams in the desert and will build you up again. Again you will rejoice, again you will dance and sing, for He comes to build and plant in you his everlasting love that will bring a full harvest.
Wherever you find yourself today, what grace do you need to be drawn closer to God?
Let him deepen his life in you.
Pause to respond to this life of grace in you,
“ We say yes to seeing the streams of living waters in the desert places of our souls.
We say no to that which drags us downwards and away from your life giving presence. Show us the distracting thoughts and opinions that we are to let go of now.
May your grace be found this day through the window of another's soul when we look into their eyes.
May we be a window of grace and blessings to others when they look into our eyes.
May our hands offer blessings of kindness and care and find the grace in giving .
May we find your rest in receiving.
Draw us every closer to you, to plant in us the hope, faith and love that becomes grace to the world.
