It’s been a crazy year filled with pain, upheaval and uncertainty. No wonder you yearn for life to return to normal. I know I do, until I start wondering, “What does normal really mean?” If it means I think I’m in control of my life, what does that say about how much I trust God? If it means everything is comfortable in my life, what does that say about my faithfulness as a disciple of Jesus who sends me out of my comfort zone to make disciples who have a life-changing relationship with him? If it means I am isolated from the pain of others, what does that say about how I’m living out Jesus’ call to love my neighbor? So while I may think I want life to return to normal, my soul is actually yearning for more of Jesus’ love in every part of my life.
