Four months. Has it really only been four months since we began the new year? Began it with hope and anticipation, and perhaps even gratitude that 2019 was behind us? Was it only four months ago that we began the new year with resolve that this year would not just be another year? That it would be different? That we would be different?
We seemed to have lived a lifetime in these four short months. A lifetime that has become characterized by uncertainty. Where loss has become the norm. Where it seems that we went to bed one night and hours later woke up in a different world. A world in which, as of today, 2.2 million people are known to be infected with the coronavirus. And over 150,000 have died.
Into the cycle of bad news after bad news, another story, another perspective needs to be injected. Christ is Risen. He sits at the right hand of the Sovereign God interceding for us. We are not alone. God has a good plan and will bring us through this.
