You may feel alone; but you are never forsaken

Morning: Psalm 72; Judges 3:12-30; Acts 1:1-14

After a fabulous, restful summer holiday, the story of Jesus’ crucifixion brings me down to earth again with a bump! Jesus makes this human journey with us. And his cry from the Cross echoes our own cry when, in distress, we find ourselves alone: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”  Some human experiences are earth-shattering; the earth moves under our feet.  Yet the earthquake and the voice that follow Jesus’ cry may be God’s answer … When everything has been shaken, what remains is that we are children of God; never entirely alone, not forsaken … ever.
