Daily Scripture

I sought the Lord and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.

This poor soul cried, and the Lord heard me and saved me from all my troubles. (Psalm 34:4&6)

Daily Reflection

Here we are entering another period of more restrictions; the effect and the uncertainty caused by Coronavirus continues. The implications to our normal lives and the things we all naturally want to do as social people are huge. It would be very easy to feel despondent. If you feel like that, then use the words of the Psalmist today: Seek the Lord; Cry out to God…… Let Him hear how you really feel!

A few verses later he says: “The Lord is gracious; you will be blessed if you trust in Him.” Try it.

Send your holy angels to watch over us, O God, that on our lips will be found your truth and in our hearts your love; so we may ever taste your goodness in the land of the living; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Revd David
