We made it to the end of 2020 and for many of us, we greatly rejoice! It’s a great time to reflect on how good God has been in the mist of so much change. Like so many, I may not have liked the way this year affected life, but still I can say, with every adjustment God granted peace. Let’s take a moment together and discuss, “Here it comes.”
It is funny when you consider that as you crossed into this year (2020), no one would have thought it would have turned out the way that it did. With that said, I think it is important to remember this and consider how many are affected by so much in life constantly around us and we may not be aware of it. When this pandemic hit, like it or not it impacted everyone in one way or another. We may not like to meet change when it hits us as blatantly as it did, but we honestly had no choice.
With this in mind, I believe this year was a year to reflect on ‘home’ more than ever. Many had to adjust to working from home and some even had to teach children. This bought the reality of how important so much of life happens around us and we just have to keep going. Bringing all we do ‘home’ caused a greater reality to so many and I believe even a deeper appreciation.
Now, with still uncertainty, we prepare to cross over into another year (2021). We have to be ready for more changes ahead. Like it or not, life has changed since this pandemic and it is not completely done yet. Even with vaccines etc., we must settle in our hearts God you are in control of it all and I must make the decision to trust you completely. You see God brings assurance and hope to our hearts no matter what we face.
Doing life differently does not mean it cannot become for us a blessing. It is my prayer that God will take care of all our needs as we cross over into another year. He is good and promises to take care of us every day. There is no one like Him and I want to extend to you, take a moment to talk to Him as you enter this New Year. Don’t be without Him. It really is our choice. I pray God will grant peace to many lives, health, provisions and a sustaining anchor of hope.
