Hello, friends. How has your week been? I think some places feel a little more normal, some are still facing various limitations. Based on the advice of a friend, I am trying to get back to normal as much as I can. Restrictions are being lifted and let’s face it – I still need groceries (and now home improvement stores are becoming a need).
We are still facing heightened emotions based on all the things we hear and read as well as what we are living through. Friends who claim to know and serve Christ – we have a job to do no matter what. We need to make wise use of our time and be gracious in our speech. Right now, it is hard. We are being hit in areas of our lives that we are not used to. This scares us. Fear can push us towards ungracious words and behavior. We need to keep praying for wisdom and grace to navigate our circumstances in a way that honors the One Who has given us eternal life.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Please help me to navigate my current circumstances with wisdom and grace. I want others to see Who You truly are. We need the truth to prevail. Please help me to encourage truth and not get in the way with foolish, ungracious speech.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
