These are unusual times. This is not the first time there have been unusual times. Remember the wise teacher’s words in Ecclesiastes,
History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new. Sometimes people say, “Here is something new!” But actually it is old; nothing is ever truly new. We don’t remember what happened in the past, and in future generations, no one will remember what we are doing now.Ecclesiastes 1:9-11
Difficult to imagine, right? But I believe it is true. Today as you choose where to focus, what you put in your mind, what you read, listen to, watch — choose those things that will give you life. Choose wisely.
When I am writing, I occasionally pull songs from YouTube. After I copy and embed the link into the post, YouTube continues to play in the open tab. The songs that come, in random order, turn my heart, mind and soul to those things that cannot be taken from me. I have my own little worship service where no one watches, except the One who is unseen. And my spirit lifts, joy fills my heart and soon I am dancing through the house.
What will you do today to turn away from doubt, fear and uncertainty TO hope, joy and peace?
