Daily D – Psalm 104:19

by | Sep 11, 2021 | Daily D | 0 comments

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.

Daily D – Job 21:2-3

Job 21:2, 3
“Pay close attention to my words;
let this be the consolation you offer.
Bear with me while I speak;
then after I have spoken, you may continue mocking.”

Daily D – Job 13:1-5

Job 13:1-5 “Look, my eyes have seen all this; my ears have heard and understood it. Everything you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you. Yet I prefer to speak to the Almighty and argue my case before God. You use lies like plaster; you are all worthless healers. If only you would shut up and let that be your wisdom!”

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”

Daily D – Job 4:8

Job 4:8 “In my experience, those who plow injustice and those who sow trouble reap the same.”

Daily D – Job 2:13

Job 2:13 Then they sat on the ground with him seven days and nights, but no one spoke a word to him because they saw that his suffering was very intense.
