It’s easy to be overwhelmed by all that has been 2020. Pandemics, politics, and a plethora of other crazy events have left us all a bit blindsided. It’s easy to give into the anxiety and fear and doubts.
But God has said, “Never will I leave you nor forsake you. Never will I abandon my own who call upon me in faith and truth.”
When you stop panicking and start counting your blessings, you see less of your problems and more of God. You’re less overwhelmed by the world and more awed by the Author of the Universe, God Himself.
The best gift God ever gave to anyone was (and still is) Himself. First as a tiny infant so long ago in that manger in Bethlehem and now every day in the form of His Holy Spirit. What we need — what I need most– isn’t answers or a view of the big picture. What I need most is God Himself. Just knowing He’s near is enough. Just knowing He’s in control will be enough.
