Jesus is as alive now as he ever was. Perhaps we are in just the position to accept this “quietly dramatic” appearance of God in the flesh and the unlikely evangelist celebrating the miracle.
God can move mountains, turn a few fish into a feast and make the blind see.
God has given each of us the opportunity to fully focus during this time of quarantine, this time of Lent.
Show us how you can help us turn our present circumstances, world situations, and our hearts into the miracles of new life.
In our obedience lies the joy and celebration that grows out of our relationship with God and the people in our lives.
Lent is a time of reflection, devotion and sometimes struggle.
For in the time when we celebrate living through a plague, we are living through a plague ourselves.
Leaning in again on these lyrics and these passages to help guide my understanding of death and the promised life that follows.
We will rise from the valley of the dry bones, filled with the breath of life, and trust that God’s love will endure forever.
Maybe I should stop reading the news articles about the mortality rate of COVID-19, or how people are dying alone in Italy. The power of death in the face of our current global pandemic has never seemed closer and more real.
