2020 has been a year that has come with many challenges for so many people, certainly a very hard year. If you listen you will hear the dialogue, “2020 is the worst year we’ve ever had, what an awful world we live in.” Negativity certainly swirls all around us. But is 2020 the worst year we’ve ever had, is the world we live in as bad as we think it is?
You see, I believe God chose every single one of us to be here, right now, on this earth. The earth our beautiful Creator created especially for us! Did He make a mistake? Acts 17:26-27a tells us this; “And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord.” You were indeed placed here, by God, during this season, in 2020, as quoted in Esther, “for such a time as this!”
I decided to take stock of my own journey in 2020. Six months ago, I began a prayer meeting on a Friday morning with a beautiful group of women. What glorious times we have had with the LORD, worshipping, listening and waiting on Him. Have I missed being with my children this year? So, so much! Have I missed the social side of life? Sure. Harder to watch has been seeing so many sick and literally starving. But, have I drawn closer to my Abba Father? Oh my, yes I have!
So here in begs the question, can we rewrite the script of 2020? Can we pivot and see things from another perspective? Absolutely we can! With under two months left in 2020 can we change the outcome? I believe that if we are intentional, we can! Why did God set you where you are and at this time? Our scripture tells us; “so that they should seek the Lord!” Every day is a day when God extends new mercies to us, every day our Abba Father beckons and encourages us to draw near to Him and He will draw near to you! Seek the Lord out, rewrite your script, making 2020 a year your relationship with the Father changed, a year when you drew closer to your Savior. That will be worth savoring and remembering!
