Okay reader, POP QUIZ! Just kidding, there's no quiz, but I do have a question for you. What have you been doing with your time over the last several weeks of quarantine? Have you been staying busy with school work, or maybe spending a lot of your time with those home projects you haven't had a chance to get to until now? What about your spiritual life? How have you been spending your time there? As I was going through my bible app, I came across this image and it really made me think about how I've been using my time lately. Sometimes, in moments like the ones we are living through now, it's not always easy to be hopeful or patient. There are even moments when prayer might seem more like a chore than a lifeline. I've definitely been there. But my desire for you today is that, just like Romans 12 says, you would find a way to rejoice in the hope that better days are coming, that you would be patient as we continue to push through this pandemic, and that in the midst of it all, you would position yourself in a place of constant prayer. I know it may seem difficult right now, but you can do it. You know what? Let's do it together. Let's commit to rejoicing, and being hopeful, patient, and prayerful in the days ahead!
