To say that the events of 2020 were unexpected would be an understatement. But while we did not anticipate a pandemic, God was not surprised. He writes the stories of our lives. The Bible is full of people whose lives were radically altered as they learned to follow God’s plan. Pastor Doug shared about Mary and Joseph in his Christmas series, but the list also includes Moses, Job, Jonah, Paul and others. We can draw strength from their faith journeys as we continue our own.
Questions for further thought:
1. How did the events of 2020 impact your faith?
2. To put a slight spin on that, how did your faith affect how you handled this past year?
Challenge: As you consider this past year, write down how your faith was made stronger in 2020. At the same time, write down some of the faith struggles you had in the past 12 months. How can you continue your progress and what steps can you take to address your spiritual challenges?
