Hey friends, how are you doing? Its September friends; we are three months away from the end of the year, can you believe it? Still feels and looks like March though. We’ve spent the last four months, adapting to a new normal, or perhaps you’re like me, instead of adapting, I found myself, waiting and waiting for my ‘old’ normal. I don’t like change, I really don’t want to adapt, I want things to go back to normal. I want life to go back to what I know to be familiar, therefore, I found myself waiting and I’m still waiting. I’ve spoken to the Lord about this, He spoke back, of course, as He always does. I expected life to go back to normal then, because as you know, I’m His favorite child, or so I thought.
But of course, here we are four months later and instead of getting better, it seems like we are regressing. Well even in this, the Lord continues to speak, He reminds me of the sufficiency of His grace, in my weakness’; He reminds me of His strength when I’m weak. He promised His presence through every trial or tribulation, and He promised to provide and protect, just as He does with the lilies of the field and the birds of the air.
So, then what should be my response to this then; perhaps I need to be reminded of Mary’s answer, when the angel of the Lord appeared to her on that fateful day, so many years ago;
Maybe then, I will begin to live life, the way my Savior intended, in spite of the circumstances. Maybe then, I will see the beauty that’s just waiting for my eyes to focus. How are you doing?
