Educating for the Lived Gospel #250

On the day I called, you answered me,
you increased my strength of soul. (Psalm 138:3)

This cry of the heart aptly describes the human condition – being in need. The strength we ask for is not physical but strength to ‘deal’ with what life throws at us – strength of soul. If you ask and keep asking and are never answered, you’re likely to give up. The fact that you’re reading this means that you have felt ‘answered’ or have not lost hope. My prayer is that you continue to feel strengthened by our God.

As we renew our ministry with young people, there are any number of reasons why they would want to feel strengthened: dealing with family or friends, the demands of study or their own ’stuff’. The need is there. We can share our experience of being strengthened and/or supply them with opportunities to ask for strength. An answer is a prayer away.

Have a great week…and term!
Patrick
