“Behold, God is my salvation;
I will trust, and will not be afraid;
for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song,
and he has become my salvation.”
Isa 12: 2
The world is both beautiful and treacherous. Humans are flawed. Some mean well but fail to live up to their hopes for themselves. Others are malicious and have no higher hopes for themselves than personal gain, at whatever cost to others. We rub along and limp along together. It is only God who is strength and salvation, the promise of our future.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
