“You may proclaim the mighty acts of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” 1 Peter 2:9

The morning dawns with uncertainty. This is always true, of course. We may know what’s on our calendar (confirmation rehearsal, soccer practices, a baseball game) but we cannot say with certainty what the day will bring. These days, however, the uncertainty factor feels like it’s through the roof.

Today’s top headline is that COVID-19 has reached the White House. What will this mean for the president, our nation, our world? My prayer this morning is that President and Mrs. Trump, and all those infected with this virus, will fully recover. My hope is that this episode will lead more people to take the virus more seriously. My yearning is that all people would have access to the type of expert medical care that the president is receiving. And perhaps we will learn that we really are all in this together, that the world is better when all people work for the benefit of all people.

The New Testament verse from the Daily Texts today invites us to proclaim the Lord’s mighty acts. God can accomplish these things. Whatever else happens during these uncertain days, the works of Jesus Christ are sure and certain. His love endures forever. May he lead us out of darkness and into light.

Be well, friends. You are loved.

God of life and light, may your Son’s brightness pierce our darkness. Bring healing where it is needed and hope to all people. Send forth your Spirit and enliven us for your purposes, whatever the day may bring. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
