Barasoain Weekly Reflection for 2 – 7 October 2016
“He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.”
Of all the months in a year, October is I like the most. There are many extracurricular activities in the school as well as the incoming break for students which makes me excited about. Finally, the hell of four-month straight academic calendar has come to an end and second semester is about to begin.
It is very delightful for a person to know that there is a new start again. Yesterday is the start of another month which happens to be my favorite. Every start of something new is exciting: We get to renew ourselves and at the same time, we are refreshed from all the troubles we faced. We may have encountered trouble or we have been tired in the previous months and with the coming of another month, we have high hopes of renewal and refreshment.
October is also two months away from December, wherein we celebrate the coming of Christ on the 25th day of it. The coming of Christ is a call of renewal for us for we are invited to become new again in his side and to leave our old selves (and our sins) behind to be with Him.
The start of another month is a symbol of renewal, the coming of Christ is the symbol of new life. Grab the opportunity to be renewed and refreshed and follow Him.
“God uses broken things. It takes broken soil to produce a crop, broken clouds to give rain, broken grain to give bread, broken bread to give strength.” – Vance Havner
