Psalm 39:6

Psalm 39:6 Yes, a person goes about like a mere shadow. Indeed, they make noise temporarily, gathering possessions without knowing who will get them.

All around us are the shadow people. It sounds like a “b” movie, but it is true. We spend our lives making a few squeaking noises as we try to accumulate some stuff. All too soon our lives are over, and all that is left is the stuff, most of it no one wants. And we don’t even have control over who gets the stuff we spent so much time gathering.

A few of us dare to grasp something more substantial than the stuff. We have heard that there is a being who is more than shadow. He is permanent. So, we dare to seek him, and put our faith in him. He promises a resurrection unto permanent life. The shadows will laugh at us, but we seek something more.

Lord, we are reaching out our shadow hands and want to grasp you, our substantial God, and our only hope of permanence.
