As I watch virtual graduations, weddings, and birthdays I’m reminded of how precious life’s moments are. I’m also saddened by the fact that so many aren’t able to celebrate with loved ones.
At the same time, I’m reminded that delay is not denial.
I’ve heard the above saying for years but it rings true now more than ever. So many lives have been put on hold – plans postponed or even cancelled – refunds given for events that may not happen and sadly, jobs lost and a general feeling of hopelessness.
Twenty-twenty, once dubbed a game-changing year, has literally changed the game – forever. We’ll never (hopefully) in our lifetime have another year like this – one where we can’t hug or hold those near and dear or pursue our passions in quite the same way.
I was so hopeful on New Years Eve. I stood in church and shouted joyfully not knowing that God was going to flip it in more ways than one. I know God’s ways are not our ways and I’m sure He has a plan for it all. It’s just….in my wildest dreams, I would’ve never thought Covid would happen!
But, with all of that being said, the truth is….all things are STILL possible. A pandemic has never been able to stop our God and although this year and years to come will forever be changed, God’s still on the throne. He is still in the blessing business and He can bless you and me in the midst of all of this.
The baby, love, the promotion or increase can still happen in 2020! We’ve got a lot of year left! I’m once again hopeful and looking to make the most of whatever God decides to do. He’s calling us to lean on Him corporately and that’s what I’ll continue to do. Will you join me?
We may come out with some scars and bruises come 2021 but the victory is in making it through.
So be safe, keep your head up and your mask on. Delay is NOT denial. God’s got a blessing with your name on it and not even Covid can stop it.
