In your meditations on the Cross, I’m sure that you have noted that we mark time by moving toward Calvary. The Cross never moves. It is our guiding light and our destination. God is immovable as well. When our relationship with Him seems broken or strained it is not Him who has moved away from us. It is us that have wandered. The Psalmist knows this truth and yet cries out in Psalm 27:
Hear my voice when I call, O Lord; be merciful to me and answer me.
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, Lord, I will seek.
Do no hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper.
Do not reject me or forsake me, O God my Savior. (vv 7-9)
Look out over the weeks ahead and plan your course so that you seek His face. If His voice is absent or so quiet as to be difficult to hear, move toward Him. Recognize that we are prone to wander away from the Shepherd. The more we try to find our own way, the more lost we become. Look toward the light of the Cross and set your compass on its glow.
Grace and peace to you.
