Joy and Sorrow
Plans ruined. Jobs lost. Expectations dashed. That’s the new normal during this time. And we keep hearing that things will never be the same again. It’s disorienting, but God’s people have been here before. Their city laid to ruin, then exiled and scattered, the people of Israel had lost everything familiar and were powerless to do anything about it. But the ancient books of Ezra and Nehemiah witness to a God who moves... even among the ruins. A God who restores! Right now, what we need more than a return back to normal is a return back to this God!
