As MacTavish and I went on our early morning stroll, I could not keep my eyes lowered. The brilliant blue sky…the shining star that gives us light…the orange glow on the horizon…the gift of another day.
Our Sunday morning adult class is reading a book entitled, The Journey to Jerusalem; Jesus takes the road up to Jerusalem, climbs the Temple Mount, and stands face to face with enemies. I often wonder: when did Jesus know that his time had come? When did he know that the taunts of his accusers would be realized? What kept him going?
What keeps you going when you walk through difficult days, weeks, months? I wonder if these words ever slipped out of his lips during this final, perilous journey. I wonder if these words can be our prayer today. Especially if the day is a difficult one for you.
I trust in you, O Lord;
I say, ‘You are my God.’
My times are in your hand…
Make your face shine on your servant;
save me in your steadfast love! (from Ps. 31: 14-16)
Grace and peace,
