Even in darkness light dawns for the upright,
for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous.
(Psalms 112:4 (NIV))
How would you classify the current year as it is quickly coming to a close?
If you are like most people, I am sure that you will say that it has been something extremely out of the ordinary.
Everyone in the world has been inundated with panic, shortages and quarantine just to skim the surface. It has definitely been an interesting and, dare I say, a dark period of time. Large cities look as if they are desolate. Whole countries are on lock down, and worldwide social and political strife seems to be the normal modus operandi for the last several months. On the surface, things are not looking good.
Has you faith increased?
Have you found renewed hope?
Do you still find joy in the the simple things of life?
Have you become closer to your family?
Have you drawn closer to the Lord?
I have heard many people say that they feel that God is using this time in history to draw people into a closer relationship with Him. Many of the distractions are no longer an option. The hectic pace of our lives has slowed considerably, and this has allowed people to search for meaning. Many people are turning to God’s Word and turning to prayer.
Have you found a renewed desire to draw closer to the Lord?
Have you experienced His light dawning in your life?
