What do you do when you lose control? Not in a wild and crazy sort of way. But more in the sense of knowing exactly what not to do, even having boundaries in place, but then helplessly observing yourself cross every boundary and break every commitment. In short, how do we come back from not being able to control our evils? The Word tells the story of a man possessed by demons, so possessed that even chains could not bind him.

People are also looking to the future and wondering what will happen in the 2020’s. With these thoughts on our minds it seemed like it be useful, this Sunday evening, to reflect on Psalm 90 where it says, andquot;teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.andquot;

A different baby was born in Bethlehem, hundreds of years before Jesus was born there. The mother of that baby died in childbirth and soo named her son andquot;son of my sorrowandquot; before she died. Later the father renamed that baby, andquot;son of the right handandquot; or andquot;son of strengthandquot;. This story offers an opportunity to reflect on our sorrows and the strength that the Lord has given us through our sorrows and also gives us another way of understanding why the Lord was born in Bethlehem.
