So it was with some irony that I read the words from vs 11 “May you be made strong with all the strength that comes from his glorious power, and may you be prepared to endure everything with patience, while joyfully giving thanks to the Father”. I did not really give thanks today – I just was grumpy! Yet I found the strength to get through everything that was expected of me. So I now pause to give thanks to God. And I invite you to read this passage as a celebration of the life we have been given.
Sixth Sunday after Trinity37 The Church for Others
The Scripture passage for the day is drawn from Reuben Job and Norman Shawchuck, A Guide to Prayer for Ministers and other Servants, (Nashville, The Upper Room 1983), 231.
This reflection is from my own devotional exercises for the day.
