Meditation — June 7, 2019

Posted on Friday, June 7th, 2019

Scripture: “In all truth I tell you, when you were young you put on your own belt and walked where you liked; but when you grow old you will stretch out your hands, and somebody else will put a belt round you and take you where you would rather not go.” John 21:18

Prayer: I have visions of accompanying my father to a host of doctors in his old age and isn’t it wonderful that I am experiencing similar care from loved ones accompanying me to a round of examinations where my only responsibility is to be present—awake.

Response: There are so many lessons and signs of the Lord’s nestled in your memory. What a joy to be able to identify with your acts of love and kindness in the past to what you are experiencing now in the presence of loved ones!

Who would have thought—least of all you—that there would come a time when history repeated itself in the presence of loved ones. Can you sense with more clarity what your father experienced years ago, even though at that point in his life he was unable to express his appreciation and love except through a vacant stare?

This is a day to pray for those experiencing unexpected hardship and do not have the loved ones that surround you to offer comfort and love. Praise the ever-loving Lord who is present whenever one experiences unfathomable trials and sparks smiles of thanksgiving on all participants. Praise your ever-loving God!

All for today.
