Nearly a week has gone by of this Lenten journey.
You possibly have already picked up that either through the daily videos or the reflections we have focused on prayer as being the foundation of our daily lives with God. It is how we communicate and experience God. We can pray through the sacraments but also through the daily occurrences of life.
The videos and reflections have touched on a wide-ranging set of topics that are part of our daily lives.
Day 1 Taking stock of our lives.
Day 2 That life can be filled with difficult decisions and circumstances.
Day 3 Accepting God’s ways when we do not understand.
Day 4 Handling Criticism
Day 5 Counting our Blessings
Day 6 Holiness is being all that we can be in God.
Lent is taking stock of who we are and our need for God.
God desires to walk with us in the very mundane activities of our lives. It’s easy to feel a sense of God if we are standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon in the United States or looking upward at the dome in St Peter’s Basilica in Rome or looking at the beautiful colours of the Barrier Reef in Northern Australia but life is not always that inspiring.
It is in the ordinary and everyday happenings of life that we must find God close to us and not far away.
Today as you spend a few minutes in prayer and reflection, reflect on where you see and experience God at work in you right now.
