It’s July again and holidays and travel are on the minds of many of us. If you are driving down south this summer, I suggest you avoid negotiating the M60, M61 and M62.
Those roads have identity problems. They change from one number to another and then back again in a way that only seasoned travellers can possibly understand. Roads like that make the A77 and the Holmston and Whitletts Roundabouts feel like country lanes and relaxed junctions.
We seem to lead lives at motorway pace these days, and it does us no good. The Lord Jesus invites us to, ‘Be still, and know that I am God.’ Oh, the relief of taking time out of all the hustle and bustle and spending it with the Lord!
The Bible tells us of many occasions when the Lord Jesus spent time in prayer with his Heavenly Father. And if he needed to do that, how much more do we? (see Psalm 46:10)
