The Constant

The Constant

January 2

Read: HEBREWS 1:1-12

I’ve experienced many difficulties in life—illness; injury, surgery, and rehab; unemployment and professional rejection; the tragic deaths of friends and family. But even when I was lost and desperate during a four-year period of unemployment, I felt God’s love. Even when I felt prickly and bitter and asked hard questions of God, he never withdrew his love. I have questioned many things, but never the presence and love of God.

Psalm 117 is the shortest psalm in the Bible. It proclaims God’s steadfast love and enduring faithfulness. As we begin a new year, take a few moments to look back at 2020. Where do you see signs of God’s faithfulness in your life and in our world? Then, look back at your whole lifetime. Where have you seen the glow of God’s love? How did it bring light to darkness?

Lord, we praise you. We adore you. How good you are to us in every age and situation! May our praise endure as long as your love. AMEN.

About the Author

Corrie Gustafson Montoya | I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, but in adulthood I have made homes in six other states and in British Columbia. In addition to my work in college student ministry, I have also served as a local church pastor and as a hospital, hospice, and school chaplain. I moved to South Florida in December of 2018 to serve as a chaplain at Covenant Living of Florida. In my first two years here, I met and married Dennis Montoya, who is a computer technician for our county school district. My hobbies include reading, baking, playing board games, and singing along to music. I’ve also blogged at for ten years. Together, Dennis and I enjoy exploring ethnic cuisine and walking or swimming at our city park.
