Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them this question: “What do you think of the Messiah? Whose son is he?” They said to him, “The son of David.” He said to them, “How is it then that David by the Spirit calls him Lord, saying,
‘The Lord said to my Lord,
“Sit at my right hand,
until I put your enemies under your feet”‘?
If David thus calls him Lord, how can he be his son?” No one was able to give him an answer, nor from that day did anyone dare to ask him any more questions. Matthew 22:41-46
Some days are smooth waters
most days are choppy and dark
the rain pours in and we sink low
our lives are spent frantically bailing.
The tides are often against us
and the fish no where to be found
we wring our hands as we wring clothes
trying desperately to be high and dry.
We are never alone in our challenges
silently and sweetly we are stood with
as a parent watches over a sleeping child
God lingers when we think otherwise.
Let us cry out in our times of fear
let us remember we are called by name
children of God ever loved and desired
children of One who will never leave.
Let us trust the One who lives
the triune and undivided Creator
who is known in relationship always
and who speaks through children and angels.
