Message from Jim Koan, Superintendent

His compassions never fail.
     They are new every morning;

Is regret dragging you down this morning? Perhaps a harsh word which escaped your lips and fell on tender ears? Perhaps it’s the memory of your silent treatment at your spouse? Perhaps you blew it; nobody knows you blew it but you – and that is more than enough to fan the flame of your regret.

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. (Lamentation 3:22-23)

But in Your great mercy you did not put an end to them or abandon them, for You are a gracious and merciful God. (Nehemiah 9:31)

They shall mount up on wings like eagles.

Feeling the weight of the world today? Run out of money before you run out of month? Was the drive in today more like a ‘motorized grudge match’ than a ‘commute’? Is there a phone call you are expecting, dreading actually, which has you distracted? Perhaps a child – one of your own or one in your class – is wayward and wandering on a path a destruction and you’re at wits end to bring him around?

They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up on wings like eagles. They shall run and not grow weary; they shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31)

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (Matthew 11:29)
