The Lord is with me

“All my friends are waiting for me to slip. . .But the Lord is with me like a mighty warrior.”  (Jeremiah 20: 11)  Sounds like Jeremiah needed some new friends.  So many disappointments.  His story is helpful to those of us who have unanswered questions.  If God is involved in our world, why not MORE involved?  Why does He allow bad things to happen, bad people to prosper?  Like Jeremiah, we never get a full answer.  What we get, instead, is the assurance that God will be with us.  (cf Jeremiah 1:8)  People will abandon but He won’t.  He will strengthen us in suffering but not exempt us from it.  Is this enough?  Ultimately, yes.  There is no other path.   I am looking forward to seeing you in a few hours.  When we gather for worship, we remind the world of a the savior who was willing to die and left a cross that we must also carry.  He promises to be “with us” as we do.  I love you.  Don
