What are you willing to give (time, talent, treasure) to make space for the transforming love, power and healing of this season? - Daily Bible Reflections February 20,2015

CATCH UP
 
“The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast.” – Matthew 9:15
 
       The captain of the expedition in the thick African jungle was certain his team wouldn’t make it on time to the spot where the helicopter will meet them. Huge and heavy boxes that the African slaves were made to carry slowed everyone down. The leader thought of a novel solution: to increase the pay of the slaves if they speed up.
       Halfway to their destination, the African slaves just stopped. With everyone refusing to stand up and having no plans on getting back on track anytime soon, the captain shouted, “I promised to increase your pay, even outrageous perks! Get up!”
       The head of the slaves spoke with a straight face, “Sir, we need to stop. We need to allow our souls to catch up with our bodies.” He explained, “Our tribe believes that when a person runs too fast, the soul gets left behind.”
    Have you been running too fast — too busy, stressed and overwhelmed by life? God wants you to stop and to fast from worldly concerns. Then allow His rest and miracle-bringing joy to catch up with you.

Reflection: What are you willing to give (time, talent, treasure) to make space for the transforming love, power and healing of this season?
 
Father, I’m excited for what You have in store for me in this season of grace. Give me the silence to listen and the courage to respond.
 
Blessed Jacinta and Francisco Marto, pray for us.
