Hope all's well.
So this is us in for another round of hibernation.
Remember, don't count the days. Make the days count.
There's a wonderful healing story in today's readings in Acts.
A man who had never walked in his life listened to Paul preaching. Paul saw the man and saw that he had the faith to be cured. 'Get to your feet and stand up’ he said to him. The paralysed man jumped up and began to walk.
Paul and Barnabas, who was with him, knew that this power which they had to heal or any good which they did, was all due to God alone.
There’s a line from today’s gospel which Paul knew the truth of 'Anyone who loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and make our home with him'.
They, Paul and Barnabas, knew the truth of God working within them.
The truth is that God lives and acts within us. When we do good or when we overcome evil, that's the result of God living and acting in us.
Today, give thanks to the one true God who makes his home within us.
Shine a light tomorrow from your window at 8.30pm for International Nurses Day, the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale, and to recognise and show appreciation for their heroic efforts to tackle coronavirus.
Hope you have a good day
