Written on our hearts

It’s graduation season. I know at least a dozen high school and college grads this May which seems like a lot. And I always wonder what kind of wisdom we might share with them as they commence into transition and move in new directions in their lives. Leaving the relative safety of high school or college is demanding and growth is hard. Yes, we celebrate and party and rejoice. But we need to also pray and lift up and support and encourage and love them.

We want them to be their best selves. This verse popped up today and seemed new to me. It was God speaking and I want to stop and listen.

Your very lives are a letter that anyone can read by just looking at you. Christ himself wrote it—not with ink, but with God’s living Spirit; not chiseled into stone, but carved into human lives—and we publish it. 2 Corinthians 3:2-3 Msg

Our lives a letter? That Christ has written?

That seems hopeful and encouraging to me. We’re not doing life on our own. We’re doing life “with”.

This is a message we can share with our grads. The Spirit is tenderly and lovingly writing into our lives that we might be hope and courage and mercy and peace and love and growing and moving and going. Now.

Thanks be to God.

We’ll be looking for you tomorrow as we gather to worship, praise and thank our God. We celebrate and bless high school graduates and their parents. It won’t be the same without you.

Grace be with you,

Vikki
