Living In Uncertain Days
Right now, most of us are totally out of our comfort zone. Yesterday’s normal feels long gone. Kids can’t go to school, businesses can’t stay open and even churches can’t gather together. Everyday makes us feel like we’ve been thrown into a prison of sorts. Especially when we’ve been ordered not to leave our home for anything not essential. Jobs are being lost, bills are stacking up, and anxiety is rising every direction.
All of the above, is on top of this pandemic that threatens many lives. We’re fighting a virus that preys on the vulnerable and even those with no underlying health issues. We just don’t know how long we will stay in this waiting chamber. We’ve been forced to pray more and free fall into God’s wide open arms. Especially the longer that none of us feel in control of anything.
Now, I could go on and on about what doesn’t seem certain. Instead, I feel led to point out what is certain. Jesus is certain and He won’t ever change. He will always be with us for better or worse. God has certain plans even if they don’t make sense to us. God is certain He will make a way when there seems to be no way. We must choose to rely on His goodness, faithfulness, and the fact He never changes.
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8
