Something to Think About

Evesham Editorial 15th Sep, 2019

LAST Monday afternoon I turned on my television and tuned in to the Tour of Britain cycle race and on the bottom of the screen were the words, ‘Race neutralised due to railway crossing’.

I was confused and naturally thought, why schedule the race to reach a crossing at a time when a train would be coming?

A short time later it was explained that the six riders in the ‘head of the race’ had negotiated the crossing before the barriers came down but the main body, the ‘Peloton’ had not done so. In fact any rider attempting to cycle over the railway tracks with the lights flashing, even if the barriers have not come down, would be immediately disqualified.

The leading group had been held up until the ‘peloton’ caught them up. The main group were then held back until ‘the head of the race’ had travelled the same time difference that they had achieved before they were stopped.

Life can be very confusing at times until we realise the reason for the seeming delays.

Many times in my life I have faced confusing happenings but I have learnt that with prayer and a belief that Jesus Christ knows all about these things has enabled me to win through and realise why each situation arose.

Jesus taught us the importance of prayer and that is why he left us with what we call the Lord’s Prayer.

Why not pray it now and then add your words at the end
