Psalm 23:6

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
my whole life long.

Wherever, whatever

Life is a journey of unknowing. Surely, we feel that now. It’s undeniable.

We do not know what’s coming next. We don’t know when the present crisis will release its grip. We don’t know exactly how it will affect us, our job, our town, our church.

The darkness of unknowing turns some to fear, and others to the Great Heart who says, “Be still, and know.”

This Voice speaks peace deep within our being and reminds us there is something, no, Someone who holds us … and every future we will ever know.

We dwell in the house of the Lord, in the house of Everlasting Love … no matter where the currents of time carry us. For this earth, this universe, the reality we share … is the Lord’s house, the place Love lives and moves, enveloping every moment of time and space.

Breathe. Just breathe in this awareness, and you will know what is sure amid every unknowing.

Whatever comes … you live in the house of Lord, the land of the Beloved, whose mercy and goodness attend every step of your journey.

— Pr. David L. Miller


Prayer:  Shepherd me, O God, beyond my wants, beyond my fears from death into life.

To ponder:  When do you stop and speak personally to Jesus … and listen?
