“Thou Art the Same”
Read Psalm 102
All life is unfinished. Nothing we do is complete in itself. Only by becoming part of the work of God do we find a proper beginning and a satisfying ending to our existence. When we participate in the great themes and continuities of God himself, our lives make sense.
PRAYER: Take, Lord, all my parts — whatever years and whatever acts you can salvage out of my sin — and build a new life. Lay foundations of ternity in me; construct spacious stretches of salvation around me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
By Eugene Peterson, “A Year with the Psalms” p. 115
