Last night I was invited to a small party with friends from another country. Six months ago I would have gone with no hesitation. But last night when I was invited, my first thought was that the COVID cases where I live had a mild uptick. We went from mild risk back to high risk and our mayor has mandated wearing masks in public. I also wondered what would happen if anyone at the small dinner party had been exposed previous to the party. Graciously I declined and let my friends know to keep me in mind in the future.
Never in my lifetime of 62 years have I seen anything like this. However, when the old normal way closes, new ways have come about because of Jesus working in my life. I long for the days of visiting my friends from other countries in their homes to return, but new opportunities have opened up online.
During this time of turmoil, I am so thankful that Jesus never changes as it says in Hebrews 13:
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
So while the times have changed, I can still look to Jesus who never changes. He will always be the eternal Son of God. My hope is to be flexible as times change to continue to be used by Jesus.
I am grateful Jesus anchors me in this turbulent life.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
