‘Draw near to God and he will draw near to you’ (James 4v8)
When I was 7 my Mum and Dad encouraged me to learn to play the piano, like my sister who managed to get to grade 8. They tried for 3 years but I was not good at getting down to practice, I always much preferred to go over the park to play football!
Apparently unsurprisingly practice makes all the difference. Research in the 1990’s found that within a group of violinists who started to play at roughly the same time by the age of 20 fell into three groups. Those who had practiced for 4,000 hours became music teachers, those who practiced 8,000 hours developed into good performers and those who managed 10,000 hours became world-class soloists.
This explains why I didn’t become a musician but not why I didn’t become a footballer!
However practices does make a difference and that includes our spirituality. The season of Lent gives us the opportunity to spend time and prayer and reflection or if you like time to practice.
As you journey through Lent I encourage you to use the time to draw near to God and as you do so may you find God draws near to you bringing you peace and strength.
Grace and peace. Neil Drayton
