Major potential life changing losses seems near Looks like for me 2020 gonna be one of the worse years Then the Holy Spirit said to me There’s more than half of 2020 remaining How could you be declaring defeat?
What seems like the worst may end up being the best Jesus said the first shall be last and the last first (Matthew 20:16) The best may come out of the worst You may finally get the blessing for so long you did thirst
Jesus also said it is not for you to know the times or seasons Which the Father has put in His own power (Acts 1:7) We don’t know what all will happen in a year, or even an hour We do know weeping can endure during the night And joy can come tomorrow (Psalm 30:5) We know a loss at halftime can turn into the biggest comeback win So, the worst may be the best; life’s shown it again and again.
The year 2020 brought another devastating and strange event this week But instead of it being an event of national news It was one close to my heart and home I could have started feeling down and in defeat Instead I looked back and thought about all the fun memories And it made me smile and block out what was currently happening
Going forward that’s the recipe to use When 2020 brings terrible news I’ll think about stuff like past concerts, vacations, backyard BBQs And any other memory of fun things we used to do
How can you smile in the midst of adversity? One, by realizing it could have been worse than it turned out to be Two realizing that with life, God is still in control If He allowed fun times in the past, in the future fun time we will see But for now we can still smile about fun memories.
