Lent 6, Saturday, Year B

Inspired by Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29

 “The stone that the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. This is the LORD’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes. This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:22-24 (NRSV)

There’s so much that God does or allows that’s beyond our comprehension. We throw something away as worthless, only to discover that it actually has great value in a capacity we’d never imagined. We try to prevent something that seems terrible, only to discover that our intervention has led to far worse consequences than we were trying to prevent in the first place.

Our imaginations are limited, and therefore our vision for the world is limited. God’s vision, however, is limitless and eternal. Rather than fighting against the wonderful creativity of the Lord of all, let us marvel at his wondrous creation, and celebrate the glory of his world. And let us trust that God is doing wonderful things, creating new life and opportunities for healthy growth, even if we can’t see how, because he is all good, and he wills good things for his people and for his creation.

Let us pray. Creator God, you know your plan for your creation. Help us to trust in you, that we may work with you to bring your vision to fruition. Through Christ our Lord, Amen.
