“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
This is one of my favourite verses. Everyone is busy – and not without cause: we have each of us found plenty of things to worry about.We live in an age of to-do lists!
This Lent, I hope we can all find rest in Christ.
I found several recommended readings for this day in the first week of Lent, all centred around expecting a ‘sign’ from God. Indeed, sitting on our hands waiting for a sign may not be the most productive way to spend Lent(!). But maybe this is a good opportunity to do some ‘housekeeping’. Quiet our souls, simplify our lives (…where possible). Instead of looking for a big sign, what’s going on around us everyday?
God is with us! Let us prepare ourselves to make the most of God’s presence.
