Meditation — August 8, 2018

Posted on Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

Scripture: With all humility and gentleness, and with patience, support each other in love. Take every care to support each other in love. Take every care to support the unity of the Spirit by the peace that binds you together. There is one body, one Spirit, just as one hope is the goal of your calling by God. Ephesians 4:2-4

Prayer: On this 54th anniversary of my marriage, I bless the grace I received during those forty years together—the love, children, travel, and even the sudden farewell we had to accept. So much do I owe to the Lord for His care, love, and healing of me and my loved ones.

Response: Yes, who would have ever considered you humble, gentle, or patient? Yet, your journey to date continues to nudge you into that column of those who see the life-journey in the most intimately and praise the Lord for His over-whelming grace in all circumstances; and you don’t want to miss the subtle expression of His love and guidance.

Look around at your fellow-travelers. Notice that only a few can still sprint down a beach, or scale the heights without a pause, or swim out into the deep without a second thought. Yet, all of you are becoming sensitive to those around you; you seem to have lost your desire to take over a discussion; and, yes, you listen as you don’t want to miss a heart expression of a loved one, friend, or even stranger.

Be ready this day and the following to welcome those still sprinting who come to the end of their run. Embrace the stranger, and, of course, delve ever deeper the love you share with a loved one. Praise God!

All for this morning.
