Peace In Uncertainty by Sonya

During this year of 2020, there has been so much uncertainty with what we have had to deal with through Covid-19. It has been hard to plan and see what the future holds as we are in this season of uncertainty not knowing when this will end. For our family, with four kids in school it is the uncertainty of school and if they will resume to their extra activities like sports and hobbies that they enjoy. They have had so much taken away as we all have had, and things canceled that is out of our control. I am reminded that during these times which seem so hard that we serve a “BIG” God and as much as we think we are in control God has shown who is in control of it all. God is still at the throne taking care of us and giving us this peace through it all. His peace covers all understanding and gives us hope to put our trust only in Him. Our family has experienced Covid-19 firsthand as my husband contracted the virus. Thankfully, he only dealt with minor symptom.s. What kept us was focusing on Jesus knowing He is taking care of us and not letting go. God’s peace is key through the uncertain times and allows our hearts not to be troubled. “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

As this world endures these quarantines, closures and just the panic of the coronavirus pandemic, God offers peace through this all. His Word brings hope and healing and casts out all fear and worry. Let’s not allow our flesh to get the best of us during this time but find God’s peace that will last. His peace will calm and give an assurance that He is on the throne taking care of us every step of the way. Let the spirit of truth bring you peace in these uncertain times. As we put our trust in Him and not the world, we can open our eyes to what God offers. He won’t let you down and will bring healing to your soul during these times. Are you ready for God’s peace? Let go of your fears and let the peace of God transcend you during your uncertain times. Lets finish this year of 2020 with prayer and thanksgiving giving all things to God as this verse says. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Receive His peace and ring in the new year with God at the center of your life!
