Colin Sutton Rest in Peace

10 Minute Daily Retreat - Read the Word of God with a prayerful heart.
By Colin Sutton  (No.5)

Colin left to be with the Lord on Sunday, 21st February 2016. Colin was on our team of Retreat Writers and this is his first reflection.
May his soul rest in peace.
Colin Sutton shares a reflection written in October 2014. 

'Many things that are known cannot be explained, they are not seen except in the effects.'
I read this many years ago and wrote it in my Bible.

There is much in the Bible that I don’t understand, but as Mark Twain said, “it's not what I don’t understand in the Bible that concerns me, but what I do understand.”

The Bible is the Word of God, where God speaks to us about His ways that guide us as His children, so that we can live life as a child of God.

That is why I am telling you not to worry about your life and what you are to eat, nor about your body and what you are to wear. (Matthew 6:25)

Set your hearts on His kingdom first and all these things will be given you as well(Matthew 6:33)

The effect of trusting God in this Word is peace; peace that comes from living in the kingdom.
God strongly encourages us not to worry, as worry does not bring peace.

Right now let us place our lives in God’s hands, asking for the grace to hear His word, and the courage to follow His ways.
