Thought For Week

‘To be rooted is perhaps the most important and least recognized need of the human soul.’ ~Simone Weil

Our trees are turning a lovely golden colour at the moment. It is part of the cycle of a tree to adapt to the winter months ahead. The leaves will fall but its roots remain active and alive underneath. Spiritually we also need to be rooted to help us withstand the challenges and storms of life. Such roots can be strong sound values, good support structures around us such as family and friends, belief in a loving God and belief in ourselves and what we have to offer. When we take some of these for granted we become more unstable and likely to become uprooted.

The following prayer is one example of a root or anchor in our spiritual lives.

May there be peace within you today.

During this Covid 19 pandemic may you know that God holds all your worries, fears and anxieties.

May you embrace possibilities and blessings that will come your way each day.

May you trust in God knowing that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

May you use the gifts that you have received and pass on the love given to you.

May you be content knowing you are a child of God.

May you feel unburdened, free and energised by a sense of God in your life.

May you know that it’s ok not to have it all worked out and that God will also help you work it out too.

May you treasure this day as a precious gift and be open to some surprise along the way.

May you finish today with a sense of gratitude, knowing you have done your best and that no more is asked of you.
