A long time ago, there was a young man who spent years on the run.  The authorities of his homeland were after him.  They were ready even to take his life if needed.  He fled into the wilderness, accompanied by just a few of his closest friends.  He didn’t know where his next meal would come from. He didn’t know if one of his friends would betray him, bought out by the bottomless royal treasury. He slept with a weapon at his side, always wondering if this would be his last night.  One can imagine he didn’t sleep very well. Restless nights, unsure of what the future would hold.

Dear Friends in Christ, if you have never walked into a room and come to a dead stop because you can’t remember the reason you went there in the first place; if you have never searched the corners of your mind for a word or name you know you know but can’t come up with; if you have never wandered aimlessly around a parking lot, or worse yet, a multi-story parking ramp, because you thought you made a mental note of where you parked, only to discover your mental note had an extremely limited shelf life… two words come to mind…Just wait.

Dear Friends in Christ, maybe you’ve heard someone say to a parent about their child or to someone older who has had a longtime or close working relationship with someone younger, “You know, I can see a lot of you in him (or her).” Unless they’re specifically referring to a physical resemblance, what they mean is that some of the same kinds of emotional traits or approaches to life they see in you seem to have been passed down or somehow incorporated into that other person.

Text: Psalm 30

1I will exalt you, O Lord, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me. 2O Lord my God, I called to you for help and you healed me. 3O Lord, you brought me up from the grave; you spared me from going down into the pit. 4Sing to the Lord, you saints of his; praise his holy name. 5For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. 6When I felt secure, I said, “I will never be shaken.” 7O Lord, when you favored me, you made my mountain stand firm; but when you hid your face, I was dismayed. 8To you, O Lord, I called; to the Lord I cried for mercy: 9“What gain is there in my destruction, in my going down into the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it proclaim your faithfulness? 10Hear, O Lord, and be merciful to me; O Lord, be my help.” 11You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, 12that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever.
