In today’s Gospel reading from Luke 7, Jesus reveals the truth about John the Baptist. “This is the one about whom Scripture says: Behold, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, he will prepare your way before you.”
In the first reading from Isaiah 54, the Lord gives us words we must always hang onto. Words that should fill us with hope, even in the darkest of times. At the end of the reading we hear this: “Though the mountains leave their place and the hills be shaken, My love shall never leave you nor my covenant of peace be shaken, says the LORD, who has mercy on you.”
Have you ever felt like God has forgotten you? I think we all have experienced that, even if only fleetingly. That’s why it’s so important to hang on these promises of God. God love you. That will never change. No matter how dark a time you may find yourself in, always remember that.
Father, we thank you for your great love. May we always feel your loving arms embracing us. Amen.
