Good Morning Union

It's January 15; Good Morning Union

A year ago last night, January 14, 2015, the lives of Heather Boulais and her family were changed. I remember it oh so well; being at the hospital that night and again in the morning when Heather’s mom arrived. I’m changing the format and structure of GMU today in honor of the amazing and miraculous ways we have seen God working with and through Heather to get her to where she is today. As her mom Cheryl says every time she posts—“To God be the glory.”

Hey! Welcome back, or welcome to Union for the first time if you are just starting! If you are new to Union College then allow me to introduce myself. I’m Rich Carlson (aka Pastor Rich) and I’m the chaplain at Union. Each morning I write a short devotional thought, called “Good Morning Union” (GMU), for our campus to illustrate to you that God is always faithful if we give Him a chance. You will receive this email with a prayer that it will continue to unite our campus around Jesus and give us a focal point for the day.

“Exceeding great and precious promises are given to us, so that through them we may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.”      2 Peter 1:4

I KNEW there was a good reason to be fixing God’s word, especially His promises, in my mind and heart! I learned three things this morning as I mused on this verse on my walk:

FINALLY!! It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!! Enjoy while you can; the weatherman says it may not last long!

“Praise the Lord all nations…”       Psalm 117

When I was in graduate school my wife and I would memorized whole chapters of Scripture. This is the one we learned during test week! It only has two verses!

                Praise the Lord all nations,

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”      2 Corinthians 12: 9,10

Just recently this verse keeps coming up in my mind and heart as I spend quite time (out walking) with God. What a great reminder; actually three “reminders”:
