There’s no limit on what God can do. God breathed a word and the universe came into being. God’s
hand has been on each of us before the beginning of time and never departs from us. What a
blessing—and a responsibility—it is being God’s handiwork. We can be assured that God will not let us go. The Lord keeps us lifted when we feel low. The Lord pushes us forward when we’d rather stay still.
The Spirit leads and guides with tenderness and ferocity, depending on what we need and the
circumstances we face. Through it all, God is faithful. God’s love for us and all creation is secure. There is no greater gift we can receive, and all the blessings we have flow from the wellspring of that abundant and unconditional love. May our love for God, our neighbors, and ourselves be as plentiful, faithful, and true. And let us hold on to God’s unchanging, capable, and wonderful hands!
Let us encourage one another. Let us love our neighbor. Let us be the church.
