Reflections for March 22, 2015

Jeremiah 31:31–34

“I will write my covenant on their hearts.” “I will forgive them.” God seeks to bring hope out of despair, even God’s own despair over the actions of the people. God is with those who suffer, and the people hearing Jeremiah’s prophecy are suffering and in despair. They are exiled and without hope. God’s covenant is broken. The people forgot and distanced themselves from God. But God will restore God’s people. They will know God in their hearts.

 

This week, when you read a news story of suffering, look for evidence of God’s presence – hope, comfort, healing. And keep searching through newspapers, magazines, and on the Internet until you find these stories. Seek to find the moments in life’s suffering where God is present. Share these stories with others.
