Christmas Dec 21

Saturday, December 21st. The Third Week of Advent where we are celebrating JOY.


"Great is your faithfulness! Yahweh is my portion, I tell myself, therefore I will hope." LAMENTATIONS 3:23–24 RSV

The great phrase here is “Yahweh is my portion,” a quote from the Torah. Centuries earlier the Lord had said it, and Levi had accepted it (Deut. 10:9; Num. 18:20). . . . The ancient phrase had been handed down through generations, held onto tenaciously through the worst of troubles.

The people knew there was a communion with a merciful God that could not be lost because it could not be touched by the dislocations of external circumstance. The chaos and darkness of suffering become first-day light. “Yahweh’s mercy is surely not at an end, nor is his pity exhausted. It is new every morning. Great is your faithfulness!”

(Eugene Peterson, Five Smooth Stones)
