Here we are again…in the midst of uncertain times. Many of us thought things were slowly getting back to normal and there was a sense of exhaling. With ever changing policies, political and social unrest, a global pandemic and all the other curveballs of life, where does it leave your plans? Uncertainty forces us to worry and embrace fear or release the anxiety and embrace faith.
What is faith? It’s simply trusting God to do what He can and will do regardless of the changing environment. I’m reminded of the old church hymn that says, “My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus’ name.”
When everything around us seems to be changing, sinking, and falling away, we can rest knowing we are taken care of if we believe in the plan God has for our lives. This is not the time to give up or retreat in fear but press forward in what you know to be true.
