Leaning in again on these lyrics and these passages to help guide my understanding of death and the promised life that follows.
We will rise from the valley of the dry bones, filled with the breath of life, and trust that God’s love will endure forever.
Maybe I should stop reading the news articles about the mortality rate of COVID-19, or how people are dying alone in Italy. The power of death in the face of our current global pandemic has never seemed closer and more real.
In what ways are we blind?
May we learn to see each other with the eyes of God.
I may walk in the valley of darkness for far longer than I want to, but God will still be by my side. God will not leave me.
I hope that this lent we are able to reflect on the brokenness in our lives, and drink in the living water of God that reconciles and refines in our times of tribulation.
What is your Rock? The essence of this question stems from the inner struggle of learning what you put your trust in.
Remember God’s promise: that from the Rock of our Salvation, Jesus, will come living water for our thirsty souls. Stay hydrated in that knowledge on this year’s journey to the Cross.
Why is it so difficult for us to blindly trust God? Why is it difficult to have faith like Abraham did?
