I couldn’t say it any better. So here’s a thought provoking message from the past. Written some years ago by a great mind who left this world long before we could even fathom the space we’re in today.
But as we welcome this new year, let us remember it’s really a new beginning. Like every day, it’s a gift given to us to grow and move forward in this space between life and death.
A name like no other. God-with-you. God in your midst. God in the space between you and me. God in the space between here and there. God in the space between past and present. Today, I invite you to welcome God in to the space of this New Year. Enter that space knowing it was a gift given to you. Today is a gift. Tomorrow will be one too, just like yesterday was. There is nothing you can do to claim this space as your own. Because God is there with you.
Now, let’s enter that space and make it holy by living into something new!
