Filey Parish 40 Days and Nights , Day 21 Ben's Post




As we grow older we begin to look at the world through a different lens,
  • A lens less focused on ourselves and our day to day needs and desires. 
  • A lens that begins to see what God wants us to see. 
  • A lens that sees others and helps us to understand giving and service unconditionally.
Finally we realise that what is required is total and complete submission to God. Even then the ego struggles to break free and take us down dead end paths.
When this happens, and it will, remember verse 4 of today's Psalm and God will gently guide you back to his service."

Psalm 25 v4
Show me your ways,
O LORD, teach me your paths;  
Ben

  1. Thanks for that Ben. I can identify with the dead end paths. We seem to struggle with God (like Jacob) even though we know he has our best interests at heart.
