I was leaving a store yesterday looked up and this is what I saw. Okay now I know what it was…contrails or vapor trails. Water vapor from the exhaust of an aircraft(s). No big deal right? But there it was a cross.
I don’t know about you but it seems like every time I turn around there is something that reminds me of the cross. Of our Savior’s sacrifice for us. Is nature, is our world is our Lord and Savior trying to prepare us?
Rev. Martin Niemoller, a Lutheran pastor during World War II wrote this, “First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist. Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me.”
Dear God, continue to remind me of your saving grace. Open my eyes to the world about me, open my ears to the cries of others. Help me be your hands and feet in this world so that I may follow in your steps. Push me dear God to wake up to what is taking place in this world. Stand beside me as I speak up for what is right when so many turn away. Give me, give us the strength and the joy to stay on the path! Amen! Again I say Amen!
