Our God is a resurrection God. We believe in the resurrection of Jesus so we need to believe in the resurrection of our world, our country our people.
Dont waste this time praying for what you had, pray for what you want your future to hold.
What has this time of fear, trouble, disease taught you?
What have you learned about yourself?
Are you going back into a job that you love, will you go back with renewed vigour? Will you look for a job that will fulfil you more?
When your children go back to school, will they go back with a more intense desire to learn, will you as their parents understand their way of learning better, be better advocates for them with a renewed understanding.
Have you learned of what you really need to survive? What is truly valuable in your life or maybe more importantly who is valued.
Will you understand yourself more, cherish your time more?
So often in life we forget that we live with the gift of resurrection. That we have the promise of more. So many right now will be heartbroken and believe me when I tell you I understand the pain of lost so deeply, so raw as if it was yesterday but I hold on to the promise of forever, the promise of our every tear being cherished.
May we come through this awful time and strive to live with more clarity, more truth, more time, more love and more hope.
