Thought for this week, from Rev Tim
Turning on the News, all I hear is how we are not going to manage the next lockdown. How we are all going to get more depressed, how awful it is going to be. The trouble is, if we listen constantly to the News that tells us we are going to get depressed and feel stressed and anxious, then we probably will. So let’s not keep our minds and ears so much to the News as to God’s word which tells us:-
‘I look up to the mountains and hills, longing for God’s help. But then I realise that our true help and protection come only from the Lord, our Creator who made the heavens and the earth. He will guard and guide me, never letting me stumble or fall. God is my keeper; he will never forget nor ignore me.’ (Psalm 121:1-2)
Let us remain to be the light and salt that we have been called to be. And remember that it is only in our wonderful Lord and saviour that we can find real and everlasting peace.
