As the month of May is in its waning hours, let's take a brief glimpse back at the month and then take a look at how “May” might remain with us throughout the year…
The glimpse back...
May 1st came in with many countries, especially Russia, celebrating May Day.
May 4th Trekkies celebrated “May the fourth be with you” aka “May the force be with you.”
May 10th Mothers celebrated and more importantly were celebrated on Mother’s Day.
May 2015 could be remembered by many for different reasons: Baltimore, graduation, birthday, anniversary, wedding, loss, job, retirement, trip, redemption, salvation, and so much more. Some will be eager to remember May while others will be more than happy to forget it. Whichever is your posture, May, as each of the other months, will leave behind a lasting impact.
The look forward...
Before May 2015 becomes history, let me leave you with some a “May” or more that will stay around 365 days and beyond. Let's look at four.
May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you Jude 1:2 (RSV)
May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ. 2 Th 3:5 (RSV)
May the Lord himself, who is our source of peace, give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with you all. 2 Th 3:16 (GNT)
May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had. Romans 15:5 (NIV)
Ummmm...I like, I like!!!!
Affirmation: May the peace of God that passes all understanding keep your heart forever.
