This past week, in his pastoral epistle, Pastor Brian, reflecting on the onslaught of tragedies assaulting our world today, wrote,
“What in the world is going on? Never before in my lifetime have such shocking news, distressing media coverage and chaotic events been so frequent…
My mind today has gone to the book of Lamentations…. It reminds us to cling to God in times of sorrow and confusion. Immediately following the praise for God’s new mercies and His great faithfulness are these words of hope and promise: ‘The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord’ (3:25-26).
While we quietly and confidently wait for God’s deliverance, when our salvation is complete, let it drive us to Him.
What in the world is going on? I am not quite sure, but I do know this…Our God is good! Great is His faithfulness! All that God has been today, He will be tomorrow. He loves you today. He will not love you any less tomorrow. You blew it today? Guess what? His mercies are new tomorrow. You get a fresh start! Let Him be your portion; your all in all.”
And in this hope we sing, “come Lord Jesus come…”
