A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will!"

Oh, if we could begin each and all of our days with this confirmation! How well-prepared we would be to live a life in Christ, a life full of meaning, purpose and peace. Jesus calls us each day to simplicity. He calls us to put Him in the forefront of our hearts and minds so that even our heavy tasks and responsibilities take on a new and important dimension when bathed in the light of Christ. Consciously giving space and time to Jesus, allows us to see the wondrous possibilities and opportunities in our lives which the darkness of brokenness and sin can all too often conceal. It is only in the light of Christ that we can reach our true potential.

Whatever burdens and worries we may be carrying at this time, let us ask Jesus to transform our hearts so that we can start today with new vigour to face the realities of our lives, confident in the Lord's eternal promise and saving Love.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.
