Good morning warriors-
It's been over two years since last my fingers typed on this blog and SO MUCH has happened. Here we are in a world that changed in the blink of an eye, we are at home and COVID-19 is rampant. And I in all the chaos, I find myself once again realizing how important HIS words are in our lives.
Breathing, inhaling and exhaling will not stop all the uncertainty, only God can calm the mind, bring peace to your being and provide a road toward hope. It's in our ability to look up that is important now, not money nor power are important right now. We are all learning that we must look for provision and sanity in other places besides ourselves and we are all looking for answers.
Families are going out together, they are eating at home together, there aren't any sports to take us away from each other and all of the sudden we have to be together, which means in a few weeks our lives completely changed. So out of what is bad, we are finding hope in ways I haven't experienced in my lifetime. We went from being a nation with stock markets at all time highs to lows we haven't seen since 2008. We were a divided nation based on political viewpoints and there was lots of hate.
How can something good come out of something so bad? Because we love a God who is turning our hearts toward him, that's how.
It will be HIS word that impacts us in the coming days when things are dark. WE MUST unite and find HIM.
So today, I leave you with the word I spoke on Christmas. It would be my word for 2020 and wow is it so true today. I chose TRUST as my word this year. In Greek, it is elpizo. Trust is hard in good times, now I must trust in the unseen and I will choose to believe day by day through the words spoken over thousand of years ago.
Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
I BELIEVE, I TRUST, DAY BY DAY, JESUS WILL SHOW ME THE WAY, and HE will for you too! Let's trust together...
