To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
O my God, in you I trust;
do not let me be put to shame;
do not let my enemies exult over me. Psalm 25:1-2
And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, just as we abound in love for you. 13 And may he so strengthen your hearts in holiness that you may be blameless before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his saints. I Thessalonians 3:12-13
I have a bit of trouble with passages that speak of Jesus’ return. I mean, the person who wrote the Gospel of Luke has Jesus saying that he was going to return before that generation had died. That didn’t happen!
And yet, I have to believe with Jesus, with the prophets, that God will eventually make everything right. And I know that I am called to be a part of that making things right. That is why I can say -why I have to say – “To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul. O my God, in you I trust.”
