I have been feeling low all day, ineffective and uninspired... and somehow the fact that today is Wednesday had sort of passed me by, and that is significant. Why? Well because I usually begin every Wednesday in an hour of prayer..
For those who are wondering, yes I pray every day, but Wednesday mornings and Sunday evenings are set aside each week specifically for prayer. I go down to the Chapel in Sherburn to pray and to listen to God... Those precious hours are his and his alone. Every morning I use the Daily Office from the Northumbria Community, but Wednesday morning and Sunday evening are more than that...
Today I forgot and I am poorer for it. Now I don't believe in a God who will wreak vengeance upon me for forgetting in fact I believe in a God of grace who missed me when I missed my special set aside time to be with him!
I find myself out of sorts, and so I am going to pray this evening instead, confident that my God will be pleased to see me, and will welcome me into Her/ His presence!
Is this the kind of God you believe in?
