“Change Brings out the New”

“It may be difficult, but let’s embrace change. Change is not the time to let hardships steal our faith, it’s our moment to have a new vision and embrace new opportunities in our life.” – #ToddCPittman

Yep, I Said It!

…and so did Isaiah 43:18-19 (NLT) – (18) But forget all that—it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. (19) For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.

“The coronavirus is not just changing society as a whole, it is also changing individual lives and our mindset. This my friends is a storm we are all weathering together. Whether rich or poor, black or white, Christian or Muslim this pandemic is the definition of an all-inclusive storm. This morning each of us was given a new day, while COVID-19 denied 89,823 people of the same. In the midst of this storm our lives have changed. Some of us have lost loves ones, lost jobs, and even lost opportunities for fellowship. BUT LET’S NOT LOSE OUR FAITH! We cannot control this. Change is how God made the world, it forces us into the unknown. But let’s embrace this change as a sign for the need to grow, the opportunity for new experiences, and the chance to develop a stronger relationship with Jesus! For those that have lost loved ones – let’s value the gift of gratefulness and the choice of forgiveness. For those that have lost employment – let’s value the choice of letting go of the old and embracing the new. And for those of us who have had a disruption in fellowship – let’s embrace learning new technology skills to worship and participate in corporate prayer and don’t forget there is still that old school resource to open up called The Good Book, a.k.a. the Bible!” – #ToddCPittman
