If you are just joining us, read this post first. Each post this week will build on one another.
Have you started a Covid-19 journal yet? If not, start there. Go and order a fancy journal on Amazon if that would motivate you. I usually just grab an old notebook. Staple some loose paper together if that’s all you have. After this is all over, you will be glad you kept a journal during this time.
In my post on Thursday I talked about how I came to a place where I realized Jesus is better than knowing the answer to my ‘why‘. Each day this week I encourage you to think through one of the ‘hows‘ I shared. Yesterday I encouraged you to find the good in the midst of your challenging circumstances.
As we wrap this week up, I want to remind you of a few things that I have said several times. Please remember that surrendering my ‘why‘ was not a one time experience. I personally had a significant, abrupt experience, but it was 16 years in the making. Also, since then, I am constantly surrendering my ‘why‘ and many other things to God daily.
So if you spent some time this week digging deeper into the ‘how’s‘ and you don’t feel like you have made a lot of progress. Keep pressing in, don’t give up. I promise it will be worth it!
Tomorrow I will post my next blog in the series, Covid Questions. We are going to take a dramatic pivot this week. Instead of focusing on the ‘why’, we are going to spend a couple weeks talking about the ‘how’s’. I would love to know how to have peace that passes all understanding (Philippians 4:7). I would love to know how to consider it pure joy when I face trials of many kinds (James 1:2-4). I would love to know how to truly cast all my worries on the lord because he loves me (1 Peter 5:7).
Because there is more,
