In The Father’s Hands
by Ruth Croft 6 January 2021
On Monday evening, our Prime Minister declared another national lockdown and on Tuesday evening our Church Council voted that our church buildings will remain closed for the time being. As I pondered both these decisions and how the coming days would now look for my own family, friends and our church family, I picked up my daily devotions, a beautiful book called ‘Five Minutes of Peace. I reread these words from Ecclesiasties 3:1 ‘To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven’.
The reading went on to say ‘Each morning, as the sun rises in the east, you welcome a new day - one that is filled to the brim with opportunities, with possibilities, and with God. Discovering God’s purpose for your life is a journey, guided by His Word.
Let our heavenly Father direct your steps day by day and leave the distant future in hands that are far more capable than our own: His hands.'

Heavenly Father, We have absolutely no idea how the next few weeks will unfold, but let us not forget that you are God over our lives, God over this world and God over this pandemic and Your hands and arms are strong enough to hold everything under heaven and earth.
