My reflection today is from Living Faith:
Sun and moon are darkened, and the stars withhold their brightness… The heavens and the earth quake, but the Lord is a refuge to his people…Joel 4: 15-16
“We’ve been through a lot in the past few years: natural disasters, a global pandemic, social and political unrest. Our losses have been personal as well as collective. Many of us have lost or been separated from loved ones. We’ve seen our work lives change, often dramatically. Yet while the tumult of this time has been real, the uncertainty of life is not new. We have never been able to guarantee our safety or that of the people we love. What we take for granted today can be gone in an instant. The one thing we are sure of is that God is with us through it all. The Lord is our refuge, our shelter in the storm. He is with us when the darkness presses in and we can’t see the path at our feet.
Lord of light, be with me in the darkness.” Karla Manternach
Nothing is impossible when God is in our life. Saint Paul tells us nothing is impossible, death, persecution
