Well, just in case you get the false impression from these blogs that I sail through difficulties with great spiritual strength, today, largely through sleeplessness and medication, I cannot focus on either praying or reading the Bible. When I read the Bible I cannot hold on to what I have read. When I pray I lose concentration and find out I am not praying at all. However there are truths that I have hidden in my heart over the years and they are enough. Today it is truths from old fashioned hymns that are strengthening me: Here is a verse that keeps on coming to mind:
“We have an anchor that keeps the soul
Steadfast and sure while the billows roll,
Fastened to the Rock which cannot move
Grounded firm and deep in the Saviour’s love.”
That is what I am focussing on today. I am remembering for myself what I said to you in a blog a while back: “Little is much when God is in it.” I found Him today in that simple hymn and in a gentle walk with a friend and their dog.
Don’t be like a Pharisee or a Teacher of the Law and lay burdens on your back that are hard to bear. Expect God’s help to come to you in beautiful, simple ways. That is really all I can share today and perhaps all I need to share.
