Imagine how strange it would be, and scary, to see dried bones coming together and bringing forth life. How many times, recently, have you heard someone say, “These are strange times”? It may seem like we are in the valley of dried bones. We may wonder if these bones can live again.
What if this time in history isn’t about looking at dead bones? What if today, the Lord is calling out to humankind and new life is coming forth? Maybe we are being invited to disconnect from our routines and habits so that we might be drawn more closely to God and to each other. Take some time over the next week and determine what you need to let go of to bring about new life. Ask yourself what you need to hold these bones together.
Join me in this prayer: Lord, open my eyes to the life to which you are calling me. Help me to hold it all together, that I may live. Amen.
