LAST Saturday was the 75th Anniversary of VJ Day commemorating the end of the Second World War with the defeat of the Japanese army.
Many people took part in the televised anniversary programme but for me three men stood out.
The first was a very elderly gentleman who was being assisted by a younger man as he carried his wreath to lay it on the piece of railway track set aside for that purpose. As he reached out to place the wreath he stumbled and almost fell. At this the third man, who had already laid his wreath, reached out his hand in assistance. Unfortunately the camera turned away and we did not see the outcome.
The striking thing was that the third man was Prince Charles, our future king, and he was prepared to reach out to help the struggling man.
In the Bible, Jesus Christ is referred to as “The King of Kings and Lord of Lords” but he too comes to where we are as we struggle through all of life’s difficulties and dilemmas.
We live in very trying times with many differing situations that are not of our making and it can be extremely difficult to make the right and rational decisions for ourselves, our loved ones and our friends.
Jesus shows us that as we trust in Him, in prayer, even though the problems might not go away, He is here to help us through them.
