Good Morning! – A mid-week moment of contemplation
Last night in a dream, I returned to the Gordon River, TASMANIA, where a few years ago I took this picture. Today, when I woke up I knew it was to be part of my ongoing reflective, more contemplative journey, to Easter remembrances. I found three reflection scriptures:
PAST: Mark 14:72…… Peter reflects on what Jesus had said about the crowing of the rooster and his denial. Peter wept. Knowing forgiveness yet ..not wallowing..but remembering.
PRESENT: Luke 14:31-33 . A reminder that being a disciple will be at a cost …..entailing surrender.
FUTURE; Acts 21:12-14 Paul is determined to look ahead in his Calling to follow His Saviour and walks onward despite warnings of dangers in Jerusalem.
In simplicity, two words have come clearly to mind. Humility and commitment. Maybe, this is my mid-week challenge to live in my ordinary life.
Perhaps, indeed for ALL of us to live in everything we undertake, be it the mundane, the necessary………the caring for others, the pesky phone calls,……..the daily may be irritations, or the more ‘enjoyable’ when we flow in something we love……… that humility and commitment be the yardsticks by which we judge successful completion.
Gentle Thoughts for us all to ponder.
