my reflection today is from Living Faith:
My soul waits for the Lord more than sentinels wait for the dawn. Psalm 130:6￼ ￼
“Psalm 130 is a lament often used in liturgical prayers for loved ones who have died. It speaks of the depths of profound sorrow and overwhelming grief in which we sometimes find ourselves. But it’s not without hope, even at our lowest times. However long the night, the Psalmist sings, we wait in the company of a God who never abandons, a faithful companion to us. We wait with hearts aware and attentive as a sentinel, watching for the first sign of dawn. We wait for the daylight in hope that it will break through our loss and pain. That’s a whole lot of waiting, but we do not wait alone. The Holy One waits with us.￼￼” Sr. Chris Koellhoffer, I.H.M.
Everyone reading this has gone through some grieving process. Everyone deals with grief in their own way. The one thing I deeply believe is that no matter what we are going through our God is always present with us. There are times we don’t feel the presents but have faith that God is always unconditionally loving us.
