We made it to May, aren’t you relieved?
We have lived through the panic and hopefully it looked like this.
Little by little as the world works its way through current events, I hope all of us learned to live in God’s idea of panic. That means that we actually pray, navigate our way through Christ’s instructions, inspire others and live confidently as our world changes.
It was a soul searching time for sure. I heard from people I had admired and trusted but they disintegrated into puddles when we experienced this life blip.
Is it over now? I don’t know. Neither do you.
Will we have another one? I don’t know and neither do you.
How did we react? Is it time to take a look at what came out of our mouths and hearts? To examine how we reacted and ask God to show us a better way?
Can we sincerely say, like Paul did, that we showed our best Christian side? Or did we disintegrate into fear and mayhem and yes, the wrong kind of panic? Are we showing Christ-like behavior or not?
Brethren, join in following my example, and observe those who walk according to the pattern you have in us. (Philippians 3:17, NASB)
Prayer-Lord, May we live our lives in such a way that others find the right direction and move closer to you; for Christ’s Sake. Amen.
