There are 65 days left of the year none of us expected.
When we rang in the the new decade, we celebrated 2020 with enthusiastic claims that this was going to be a year of vivid vision and perfected purpose.
Covid quickly changed our catchy inspirational words for the new year from “vision” and “purpose” to “pivot” and “unprecedented.”
But what if our initial expectations weren’t so far off?
In this year of unprecedented pivoting, perhaps we really HAVE been gifted with vivid vision and perfected purpose.
Perhaps in the stripping away of comforts and routines, we have actually seen the beauty of unmasked smiles, the opportunity to love our neighbors, the preciousness of gathering with community, the purity of stripped-down worship, and the sufficiency of Jesus in all things.
With more uncertainty in the weeks ahead, let’s not waste the vivid vision and perfected purpose we have been given.
We have 65 more days to love our neighbors, cherish unmasked smiles, pursue gathering with community, and relish worshipping with simplicity. There are 65 more opportunities for us to embrace the all-sufficiency of Christ.
Let’s be people who intentionally end 2020 with vivid vision and perfected purpose.
“You crown the year with Your goodness, and Your paths drip with abundance.” Ps. 65:11
