The 2nd Saturday in Lent 2019

My days are like an evening shadow; I wither away like grass. Psalm 102:11

This echoes verse 3 concerning the shortness of our lives.

We often get into trouble through pride of all sorts, thinking we are everlasting without God.

The humility of knowing our brevity of days enables us to trust in Christ alone.

Trust in His defeat of what shortens our days, sin.

Trust in His defeat of the power of death.

In such, in our weakness we are strong in Him alone.

To love, to walk humbly in His Ways over our ways.


Almighty God, help us to number our short lives through your infinite and everlasting love. Help us through your grace to walk step by step in your power and might, through Jesus Christ alone. Amen.
