“Life is what happens to youWhile you’re busy making other plans” (John Lennon)
I think that sums up 2020 rather nicely. Think about it. When you were asked back in 2015 what your life would look like in 5 years, did anyone guess 2020? I’m fairly certain that’s a question everyone got wrong.
But here we are. It’s 2020. Full of surprises, to say the least, and a “gift” that keeps on giving– that pandemic. I’m beyond ready to be in a post-pandemic world, but that’s another topic for another day.
I still think 2020 is what you make of it. If you give in and give up, you can count it as a lost cause. But if you still choose to make the best of it and see with a glass-full optimism, then you can make 2020 great again (sorry, couldn’t resist).
Faith looks for the best in circumstances and people. Faith holds fast to the conviction that God still works all things — even pandemics– for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purposes. Faith sees beyond the temporary trials to the eternal weight of glory that will soon be revealed in us.
Maybe you took an unexpected detour this year, but that doesn’t have to mean the year’s a bust. You still can make it count by how you choose to see it– through fear or frustration or faith.
