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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

September 2, A.D. 2005

Colossians 1:15-20
Psalm 100:1-5
Luke 5:33-39

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"Can you make the wedding guests fast when the bridegroom is with them?"

Whenever I am down, I stop to think about this passage. How can I be depressed when the Bridegroom is with me?

The passage means so much more to those of us who came after Jesus' glorious transformation because in that transformation, as we have come to understand, we have the bridegroom with us every moment of every day.

How can you fast when there is so much cause to rejoice?

We can't. We need merely remember that Jesus is, was, and ever shall be. He is the eternal bridegroom, He is the help of our souls. He is with us in this moment and in every moment.

So the next time you are tempted to sorrow turn and look to see the bridegroom who looks at you. He loves you and He has always been there and will always be there.
