Rainbows of hope from the children


Text Box: Poems & Prayers of Hope


The Word of God today recalls the extraordinary trust of Abraham. Abraham trusted in God because of his faith. He travelled to a land he didn’t know, passed through great deserts and villages full of strangers. He was prepared to go out and face the unknown on many occasions, simply because God had told him to -  and he trusted in Him. Trust can be very difficult -  because relying on someone else involves a risk, and sometimes when we have been let down we may find it hard to trust. Human bonding is dependant on trust. As Christians we are called to trust in the Lord at all times. If we can be faithful in the little tasks and promises, we learn to be faithful in the bigger and more important responsibilities that the Lord entrusts to us. The Gospel reading today begins with such an affectionate reassurance.  “There is no need to be afraid little flock for it has pleased your Father to give you the Kingdom”. God delights in us and wants us to believe that what He has promised, will indeed happen!  How rich we are! How blest we are! What more could we ask for! None of us know when we will meet the Lord face to face, but in the meantime, we keep our hearts on the things that matter most –our preparation for heaven. Only faith can guarantee the blessings that we hope for!  Abraham’s faith determined how he lived…. May our lives reflect our trust and our faith. Praise Him!
