Every day, we need to go to our quiet place...

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

January 30, A.D. 2003

Hebrews 10:19-25
Psalm 24:1-6
Mark 4:21-25


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

So another January of witnessing for life is past...or is it? January 22nd, that infamous 30-year-old blot on the American Dream! Fortunately, the horror is less frequent, with fewer doctors who have the stomach and the paralyzed heart to snuff out the incredible potential of one beautiful life! Thank God! For we will overcome, and God is truly on our side. He, the Author of all the living, created only to praise Him and celebrate the gift!

It will never be over, this discomfort, this searing pain at millions butchered. For what? Why? To prove that we can live without the laws of our Creator? Survive without His rule? Be happy without His blessing? Justice will not die or diminish; for to kill Justice, is to kill Truth... and The Word has already died once and for all. His sacrifice is our redemption.

We need only stir the Spirit within us, and be bold in prayer, bold in confident assertion. If Martin Luther King, Jr. could stir a people to sing "We shall overcome...some day" - so we too can await the day of the Lord as proclaimed in today's reading from Hebrews.

O Lord, send us perseverance, patience, and a humble heart...the rest is in Your hands.
