Daily D – Psalm 104:19
You made the moon to mark the seasons, and the sun knows when to set.
PSALM 104:19 (CSB)
Many moons ago, the sun set on a dastardly day.
Evil took aim and hit its mark again, again, again.
Thousands of cries suddenly silenced. Forever lost. Forever gone.
Twenty years on, weeping continues on schedule.
Some wounds never heal.
Decades pass. Memories linger. Grief returns.
Between the naïveté of September 10 and the resolution of September 12 remains the horror of September 11.
The moon marks the seasons. The sun sets day by day. Here we are.
Let us remember.
Let us grieve.
Let us pray.
Let us work for a new season, a new day, an enduring peace.
I will remember and I will join our Father in heaven in building a better world.
Our Father, the gift of memory reminds us of important events that shape us and reshape our world. The gift of hope teaches us that this world can experience better outcomes. The gift of grace places in our possession healing balm and building blocks. This world needs your touch again. Reach through us to provide restoration and renewal. May this be the season when the sun sets in the triumph of your love which seeks the highest good for all people everywhere. Amen.

Jeremiah 35:12-14 “This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Go and tell the people of Judah and those living in Jerusalem, ‘Will you not learn a lesson and obey my words?’ declares the Lord. ‘Jehonadab son of Rekab ordered his descendants not to drink wine and this command has been kept. To this day they do not drink wine, because they obey their forefather’s command. But I have spoken to you again and again, yet you have not obeyed me.”
Psalm 78:70-72 He chose David his servant and took him from the sheep pens; from tending the sheep he brought him to be the shepherd of his people Jacob, of Israel his inheritance. And David shepherded them with integrity of heart; with skillful hands he led them.
Jeremiah 23:20-22 The anger of the Lord will not turn back until he fully accomplishes the purposes of his heart. In days to come you will understand it clearly. I did not send these prophets, yet they have run with their message; I did not speak to them, yet they have prophesied. But if they had stood in my council, they would have proclaimed my words to my people and would have turned them from their evil ways and from their evil deeds.
