Pastor Bill's Reflections…

The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.— Psalm 126:3

Read Psalm 126

A minister shared, “Our son wrestled with drug addiction for seven years, and during that time my wife and I experienced many difficult days. As we prayed and waited for his recovery, we learned to celebrate small victories. If nothing bad happened in a twenty-four hour period, we would tell each other, ‘Today was a good day.’ That short sentence became a reminder to be thankful for God’s help with the smallest things.”

Tucked away in Psalm 126:3 is an even better reminder of God’s tender mercies and what they ultimately mean for us: “The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” What a great verse to take to heart as we remember Jesus’ compassion for us at the cross! The difficulties of any given day cannot change the truth that come what may, our Lord has already shown us unfathomable kindness, and “His love endures forever.” (Ps. 136:1)

Psalm 126 is a song of happiness on the other side of a broken heart. It celebrates the return of Jewish citizens to Jerusalem after seventy years of Babylonian exile. These lyrics are in striking contrast to Psalm 137 that recalls the tears of their years of captivity: “By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept when we remembered Zion.” (v. 1) You may remember days when there seemed to be no way forward, until the light of God dawned. We can always remember that God is with us, can always be trusted as we wait, and deserves our thanksgiving.

When we have lived through a difficult circumstance and discovered that God was faithful, keeping that in mind helps greatly the next time life’s waters turn rough. We may not know how God will get us through our circumstances, but His kindness to us in the past helps us trust that He will.

“Thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end, our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend.” When we cannot see God’s hand, we can trust His heart.

Hope and Peace to you all,

Pastor Bill
