For the Momma with BIG Questions Right Now
In July of 2020… there are only BIG questions with BIG consequences.
The underlying fear about every decision we make is that our choice is life or death.
Do we go into the restaurant, the store, the neighborhood pool, the small gathering, or to see relatives?
And now as fall quickly approaches… Do we send our kids to school? Do we homeschool? Do we attend online school?
Is there even a clear, certain, best option anymore?
I was thinking about how Jesus often asked His followers to do things that didn’t make sense.
“Throw your nets on the other side of the boat.”
“Take these few loaves of bread and fish and start passing them out to the 5,000.”
“Go into the city and get a donkey.”
“Wait in Jerusalem for the gift my Father promised.”
It all made sense on the other side of their obedience, but the faith to follow His command is what allowed them to see His plan unfold just as He had intended.
Look. I know that very little makes sense right now. I know that what experts recommend seems to change daily. I know the weight of every simple choice feels enormous. But I also know this.
The God who loves you is the one who leads you. He gave you His Word and His Spirit who continues to guide you every day in every situation.
The Holy Spirit might whisper, “Stay home this time.” You might just know somehow that you shouldn’t go to that check out line or meet at the park or say yes to the cookout.
Does God really care about the exact timing of where we go and when? Absolutely! Check out Acts 16:7.
So, what do we do about it all? We listen, and we trust that He meant it when He said His sheep hear His voice and follow Him.
The truth is, you don’t walk through this life as someone who has to figure it out on your own. You have a constant friend who knows the other side of it all and wants to lead you. As we obediently follow Him, trusting that whatever He asks us to do is the safest route to take, we can find peace even in the middle of 2020.
There are BIG questions, but we have a BIG God. That’s as certain as it gets this year.
