Day 209

Tomorrow’s Reading – 2 Kings 19 and Psalms 46, 80, and 135

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
though the earth give way and
the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.

Psalm 46:1-3

The message over and over that comes to us from God is this: “Do not be afraid!”

Why? “I am with you”

Lose your job? – God is with you.

Investments take a tumble? – God is with you.

Bad news from the doctor? – God is with you.

Flood waters rising? – God is with you.

Storms of Life raging? – God is with you.

Get the picture?

This is not a fatalist view of the world. This is a view that has God in the midst of your life. God cares what happens to you. And in the midst of whatever might be going wrong in your life at this moment – God is with you.

Seek Him . . . Find comfort . . . find strength . . . find grace for the day.

Tomorrow will come and . . . God will still be there with you!

Tomorrow’s Reading – Isaiah Chapters 49-53


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
