One of my favorite phrases, oft repeated, is “God is still God. Jesus is still Lord. And the Holy Spirit is still at work.” It reminds me, regardless of how despairing or turbulent life is, that God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are intimately involved in the world making God’s will just as real on earth as it already is in heaven. This reality fills me with joy. It brings me hope. And it brings the deepest meaning imaginable to my life regardless of what’s going on. My prayer is that it will for you as well.
