Finding Light in the Darkness
During times of uncertainty it is easy to let fear creep in around us – health concerns, closure worries, economic uncertainties, and the list goes on. As I tell my kids, when things happen that are out of our control, we can choose to worry, fear, and complain, or we can choose to do our part in making the best of the situation.
Over the past several days I have watched the Mars Hill community rally together and make the best of our current situation. Teachers have worked together to build online classes in record time, and families are encouraging each other, at a distance, in sharing ideas and asking where they can help. I am so thankful to be a part of such a caring community.
Through all this, no matter how long the coronavirus is a concern, it is comforting to remind ourselves we know the true and living God, who is sovereign over all. We know that all things work together for His glory, and we can rest in His promises. The coronavirus and its impact are no surprise to the Lord.
And let us be reminded that throughout history we see how the Lord has used persecution and trials to spread the Gospel. Let us pray that His light shines through what seems like a dark time in history. Please join me in praying that God changes us and our MHA community, through this process, for His glory.
