Pentecost Year B - Psalm 130

Psalm 130
I’ve kept the long night's watch for more than one morning and if your experience is the same as mine you know that the coming day you wait for is always too slow to dawn. That is the nature of waiting while one cries from the depths of sorrow or despair or guilt, or worse, shame. But the psalmist trusts that the sins that are continually accusing us are not counted by the Lord which is why waiting can be endured with the hope that with the light of each new day the sins of the past are erased from God’s memory. For with each new dawn the steadfast love of God is expressed in plenteous redemption which means there is no limit to the depths God will go to hear and answer our cry.
