Advent 2 – Stars in the heavens -Tuesday 5th December – Micah 4:6-13

There you shall be rescued, there the Lord will redeem you v 10

Many years ago, when I was in a small caravan with my two young children, I had broken my leg. It was in a plaster cast and could not move around easily. Feeling very sorry for myself, I was wondering how on earth I was going to manage, and how could I get the girls to school. At midnight, I heard a knock on the door; it was my father, who had heard about my misfortune and had come to pick us all up to stay with him. Since his death, I have often thought about that incident. It was a wonderful illustration to me of how God redeems and rescues us, and that words spoken in haste can often leave a mark on relationships, yet my father, like God, saw beyond that.

God who redeems and rescues, cleanse us from all that stains our hearts and minds so we may see you more clearly. Amen
