Daily Readings for Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Readings: Psalm 135 (NRSV, The Message);  Isaiah 26:1-15 (NRSV, The Message); Mark 12:18-27 (NRSV, The Message)


Those of steadfast mind you keep in peace—
   in peace because they trust in you. 
Trust in the Lord for ever,
   for in the Lord God 
   you have an everlasting rock.     Isaiah 26:3-4

People with their minds set on you, 
   you keep completely whole,
Steady on their feet, 
   because they keep at it and don’t quit.
Depend on God and keep at it 
   because in the Lord God you have a sure thing.    Isaiah 26:3-4 ish (The Message)


The passage from Isaiah continues the theme that emerged for me in yesterday’s readings. That if we put our trust in God, we “have an everlasting rock.” I think there will always be a little part of me however, that says “but…” As I engage, as I practice, maybe that part will grow smaller.
