From Our Pastor - A Future Full Of Hope

Click on image to pop up a full sized version of this image. For I know well the plans I have in mind for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for woe, so as to give you a future full of hope. When you call me, when you go to pray to me, I will listen to you. When you look for me, you will find me. Yes, when you seek me with all your heart, you will find me with you, says the Lord, and I will change your lot; I will gather you together from all the nations and all the places to which I have banished you, says the Lord, and bring you back to the place from which I have exiled you (Jer. 29:11-14).

Written by the prophet Jeremiah, this was God’s love letter to the nation of Israel-a nation in crisis very much like our own nation today. Like our own nation, it was a suffering nation- a nation under siege and in exile, cut off from loved ones, from a country they once knew and cherished, and from all that was close and dear to their hearts. Like many of us, they were a nation whose future was uncertain and they were beginning to lose all hope.

As a contemporary evangelist once said, “we may not know what our future holds, but as believers we do know Who holds our future”. We know that God has a plan for our welfare and not for woe. Let us take time out of our busy days to call on Him and pray to Him. Let us take comfort in knowing that when we look for Him with all our heart we will find Him and He will change our lot. God’s message to Israel is a message for all of us and for all humanity. It is a message of restoration and of hope. God’s promise of restoration, however, is not merely a restoration to “normal”, but something far greater. It is a restoration to a peace and a hope that only God can give us. It is a restoration to a whole new life in and with Christ. A life of profound joy and true freedom. A life that our world and its leaders promise to give us, but fail to deliver time and time again.

My hope and my prayer for all of us is that as we look to the future, let us first look to the present and find that God is with us. And, come hell or high water, that it is in Him and Him alone that we will find a future full of hope.

In Christ our Hope,
Fr. Mark
