Lenten Reflection for Thur 2/21/2013

Psalm am: 50, 59, 60
pm: 19, 46 Deuteronomy 9:23-10:5
Hebrews 4:1-10 John 3:16-21

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore
we will not fear, though the earth should change, and the mountains shake
in the heart of the sea”.   —-Psalm 46: 1-2 (NRSV)

This passage seems to focus on God’s unwavering faithfulness to humanity.
For better or worse, the world is always changing, which can lead to varying
degrees of uncertainty. There is uncertainty about the future of our lives, our
community, our country and our world. We don’t know what will happen.
That uncertainty can lead to fear and doubt, often hindering us from fully
participating in the Kingdom of God. While we will never be able to shake
uncertainty and fear, we can take refuge in God and the knowledge that humans
have been putting their trust in God long before we were born. God will
not abandon us as we pursue the Kingdom of God.
