Lord Your presence Be With Me
My telephone has stopped working. Well almost. The problem is that it will not charge. It started playing up from time to time and it has just got progressively worse.
The closest phone shop for my phone is about an hour away in the traffic if not more and then there is the drive home.
Yesterday I headed off to the phone shop only to find that they were so busy I could not get in.
So, I went home and booked an appointment at the phone shop and today I headed back.
When I got there, I was told that I needed to back up the phone before they would work on it. I did that.
Then when I checked the phone and it was somehow working perfectly.
On top of this when I eventually got in the queue for my appointment, I was greeted with the news that I had wrongly booked and that my appointment was not today but that I had booked it in two days’ time.
It has felt like if it could go wrong it has gone wrong.
We all have days like this when between a combination of our own efforts and just circumstances, that life seems so frustrating.
Today I needed God’s peace. It would have been so easy to get annoyed and worked up but I have found that prayer really helps us stay in control in exasperating times like these.
Lord may your peace reign in our lives not only when Life is going well, but all of the time. May your presence surround us as all times.
Father we make this prayer in the name of Jesus through the power of your Holy Spirit. Amen
