My Life Feels Upside Down
Most of us have been thrown totally out of our normal routines. Our days and nights have felt upside down forever. Like someone embracing a new work shift. This season of chaos has forced us to embrace a totally new way of life. All we can do is adjust and make the most of our current situation.
While we all have things we wish could change. Some of you are dealing with things that are really making your heart pound. Maybe you just need a hug and someone’s physical presence. Maybe you’re not sure how you will pay that next bill. Maybe you have young kids that are absolutely wearing you out. Maybe you’re really scared because you have certain underlying health issues.
All I know is these times elevate our insecurities and desire for predictability. We want to feel like we’re calling the shots in our life. Instead, we feel like we’re totally at the mercy of an Almighty God. Honestly, God should have our full attention by now. I’ve certainly found that He is my only true refuge and strength.
Personally, I just keep seeking to free fall into Gods arms. I’ve been through much tougher seasons in my past. However, this pandemic season is still brand new to me too. I just keep asking God to show me what He wants me to see and do through this season. I know God has a plan even now. I don’t want to miss those lessons that ultimately lead to God’s blessings.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.” Jeremiah 29:11-13
