Covid-19. Racism. A highly polarized nation. A deeply divided church. Children who go to bed hungry every night. An impending catastrophic hurricane. People living in the grips of addiction. Families struggling to survive financially. And this is just the short list of the painful realities with which you must deal. It can be overwhelming. Even to the point of wanting to just give up. But don’t. The sun will still rise. Someone will speak just the word you need to hear. A child will cause you to smile. You will make a difference in someone’s life. You will be touched by God’s grace in countless ways all day long. And most importantly, God is still God, Jesus is still Lord and the Holy Spirit is still at work. That’s a life changer.
