Not quite Hadrian’s Wall, just the sea wall at the bottom of our garden. It was a particularly stormy day and we could feel the visceral breaking of the waves.
Our lives can be full of our own walls which we have built during our lives. Jesus was a barrier braker. ‘I am the way, the truth and the life’, is how he once described himself. An invitation, in the midst of the storms of life, to take a different route, trust in a different way, look beyond the barriers that hem us in.
The route you take and have taken, is yours alone. Just like the constant moving and changing of the sea, from calm to storm to calm, and everything in between!
Jesus invites us, in the midst of the storm, to follow his steps, sometimes not in the easiest of places. As you journey during this week take a stop to look and see and sense and give thanks.
The way of Jesus brings us life to our souls.
