When the world seems crazy
When you are left feeling vulnerable and without hope
When there seems no one left
When you are in despair
Remember that there is a God
Who is always there
Who always is Watching
And who always Cares
From Ephesians Chapter 2:
Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth ...
remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world.
But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility...
His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace,
and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross,
by which he put to death their hostility.
He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near.
For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.
Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers,
but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household,
built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets,
with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.
In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord.
And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.
I will never be "great" at fishing, but spending time observing God's creation reminds me who is Great
It reminds me who is to be praised
It reminds me who has the last Word and who will bring the Ultimate Justice.
In that, I have perfect peace with God, peace within myself, and peace with the World.
You can too!
