Life has changed. Just a month ago we were planning vacations, graduations, weddings and birthday
parties. We were hustling and bustling living our best life. But something happened. The entire world
experienced a “shift.” Our collective lives are now changed. We are moving differently in the world
today. We are using new words like ‘‘social distancing and shelter-in-place.” Life has changed. We can
no longer meet and socialize in large groups. Life has changed. No more congregating in places of
worship where 10 or more are in attendance. Life has changed.
We are now challenged to choose Faith over Fear. To choose to live and love from an authentic place.
I hear the masses constantly saying, “in these uncertain times,” but I believe if we elevate our thinking
and activate our faith, we will see that the times are “certain.” Certain to change us. Certain to cause us
to care for our neighbors known and unknown. Certain to know that what we are experiencing in this
season is bigger than us. Bigger than anything we have ever encountered. But I find great comfort in
knowing that God loves us so much that he has hit the reset button on our lives. Slow down…reset.
Rest…reset. Take better care of yourself…reset. Stir up your God-given gifts…reset. Gather with your
family and love ones…reset. Make your home your sanctuary…reset. Tap into your faith…reset. Make
him the Lord of your life and develop an intimate relationship with him…reset. Love more, forgive
So, let’s choose Faith over Fear because we will get through this. Faith wins every time…I am certain.
