“Thank you Father for what you bring us. Don’t worry about daily needs God will provide. Put God first and everything else will follow.”
It’s official, my favorite member of the clergy at St. George’s is leaving this Monday. Over the last three years Mother Blessed Sacrament (AKA Mother) has helped me grow spiritually and emotionally. I’ve learned from her and her actions that God really does not give us anything more than we can handle! Prayer is so powerful y’all! When I would seek advice on aspects of my life that were weighing heavy on my heart, she’d reassure me that God was working it out and that she’d pray for me. This weekend I got to thinking, who prays for her?
Since the Lenten Season began, my church and many other churches around the world have begun including within its services the Stations of The Cross. Also referred to as The Scriptural Way of The Cross, it is a devotion where we walk with Jesus in spirit on his journey to Calvary. Each of the 14 stations mark a specific moment during the journey, prayers are said, and there is time for reflection. Essentially we are meditating on his sufferings and death. It brings me to tears every time.
