Reflects in All Creation
For I am with you, says the Lord, to save you; I will make an end of all the nations among which I scattered you, but of you I will not make an end. I will chastise you in just measure, and I will by no means leave you unpunished.
2 Timothy 4:16-17
At my first defence no one came to my support, but all deserted me. May it not be counted against them! But the Lord stood by me and gave me strength, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it. So I was rescued from the lion’s mouth.
Words of Grace For Today
Facing one’s sure end, due to enemies’ work against us though we are innocent, is about as dire as life gets.
To know God was with us,
To know God is with us,
To know God will always be with us,
To know that even if our enemies succeed in taking our life, we will live!
This is to know Grace.
And even under such threat, we live abundantly, blessed, breathing in the Spirit, and proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ, even for our enemies.
Just another day.
Tomorrow is another,
which will be filled
wonder and miracles and God’s presence revealing the marvels of the universe.
