Things Come Undone

Psalm 46:1-3

Things come undone.

There wasn’t a cloud in the sky that morning, but that afternoon a tornado cut through town with surgical precision. As night fell, everyone got to sleep in their own beds on this block. But on that block everyone was picking up the pieces of their broken homes.

Things come undone.

God brings a family together. He blesses marriage and the raising of children. We leave those blessings behind to pursue happiness, sins that break our homes, and the hearts of those who love us.

Things come undone.

My body no longer obeys my mind’s commands and my mind isn’t what it used to be either. I’m aware of that decline. And I can do nothing to stop it.

Storms surge, and the earth shakes. Orphans cry and widows weep. Hands tremble and memories fade. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. But the mercies of God which are new every morning fill our hearts with confidence that cannot be shaken.

By water and the spirit, the Father has made us new creations in his Son who died and rose again to forgive us our sins By faith in Jesus the Father declares us to be his own children and heirs of an eternal home which nothing can destroy.

God is our refuge in every trouble. Therefore will not we fear though the earth be removed though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea though the waters there of roar and be troubled though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. (Psalm 46:1-3)
