Thought for the Day by Anna Bouch
Anna is from St Luke's Prestonville, in training for ordination and will be with us on placement until the end of August.
1 Peter 1:13, ESV: "Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ."
As part of my placement with BH I’m writing a personal journal. In one of the first entries I’ve written that I am full of hope for what I will learn and pray that I might have a prepared mind, and heart to learn it, but also that I’m a bit nervous I won’t be able to serve God as He might want.
It was this passage that got me thinking that sometimes we’re tempted to pin our hopes on things that we can lose, like our sense of identity, our ‘ego’, our worldly achievements, or the football results going the way we want them to. This passage tells me to fix my eyes on Jesus, because, if I keep on in faith and hope in him, he’s going to reveal to me whatever it is I need to learn, he’s going to open new life in me through hearing the Gospel afresh. I am thankful for the wonderful opportunity God has given me, in this placement, for learning and growth as a disciple.
