One life-giving ritual is listening to the morning readings and prayers from the Lectio365 app.
When I jump in the car to go to work I hit play. It gives me 10-15 minutes of time hearing from and talking to our Father. It helps me have God’s view of life as I start the day and other voices start shaping my thoughts. Do you have a daily ritual like this? We’d love to hear from you.
We hope this month’s offerings are ‘refuelling’ for your soul.
“It’s not enough to hope our sons will become good men. We need them to be good at being men. This book shows how fathers, grandfathers, and other male mentors can lead the way.”
A Facebook comment responding to the recent Andrew Thornburn saga:
“Keep fighting the good fight. This is not a loss. This is a victory. A faithful man stood up to a wicked government and sports organisation by choosing Christ first. That is inspirational.”— Scott
“He’s not sitting there shaking his head, wishing he never went to that cross…”
Lord God, you and you alone should be the sole object of our trust.
May there be but one string to the bow of our faith: that is you, our Lord.
May we not rest in any thing other than you.
Forgive us when we trust in our heads, for our own understanding is an unsafe place to lean.
Forgive us when we trust in our hearts, for they are so deceitful and wicked.
Forgive us when we trust in our vigour, for our hands will soon hang down and faint.
Forgive us when we trust in any excellences, for the best of us in our best state is altogether vanity.
Forgive us when we trust in riches, for riches are fair-faced nothings, taking flight like birds.
Forgive us when we trust in human allies, for they prove not to be staffs but broken reeds.
But on this the arm of trust may safely lean: your almighty arm and power; and your infinite goodness, mercy, and bounty.
Life is not a race and you are not behind.
Why are you wearing that shirt?
