Side by Side with Jesus.                                                         Pastor Tom Joyce

March 8, 2021

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”

Lamentations 3:22-23

 

Have you ever noticed that at the start of everyday, as the sun begins to peak above the horizon and the birds begin their melodious praise to the new morning, there is a freshness in the air and an excitement of living another day?  God is a God of new beginnings, every day and every moment; God’s love never ends and God’s mercy gives us another chance at life today.  Maybe that is why sunrises are so spectacular; we need to be reminded that God is with us and renewing us even when life becomes hard to understand and at times will sap our strength. We have never been promised by God a pain and challenge free existence but through Jesus we have been offered a “future with hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11) Jesus comes in the midst of our joy and our sadness, our grief and our celebrations, our fears and our doubts, promising to be with us, “even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20) No matter where you find yourself today, the love of God through Jesus the Christ will never leave you; with every moment of everyday the newness of God’s grace and new beginnings for you are offered, giving hope, strength and the joy to continue the journey. “Praise with elation, praise every morning, God’s re-creation of the new day.” (Eleanor Farjeon, “Morning has Broken”) Celebrate today, yesterday is gone, and tomorrow is yet to be; live today in the steadfast love of God. Thank you Jesus, for another opportunity at living a new life in you.

Rev. Tom Joyce
