It's been a lot of years. What will be next?
It will certainly be too nuanced to say that what's coming is exactly what came before, but it will also undoubtedly be more of the very same thing.
The same sin, the same grace.
The same failure, the same hope.
The same hate, the same love.
The same lies, the same truth.
The same regret, the same potential.
The same doubt, the same faith.
The same old, the same new.
Except, of course, for the fact that these ones start today, they are the only ones you have, and they start with you. Good thing there's also the same Jesus, and the same reason to reach as far and as hard and as generously as we can.
Here's to the next chapter.
-Pastor Kent Reeder
Lamentations 3:22-23 | Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
