God’s change is good but sometimes it feels terrible. Until we can see what God is doing, it sure feels anything but good! And He can use challenges in relationships, so look out.
Some years ago, I was the small groups pastor in my local church. I was part of a team of pastors and was really enjoying that role, in fact loving every minute of it. Then for some reason, at the time I didn’t understand, my Senior pastor moved me from that role to different areas in the church. At the time I had two children and small groups ministry – it was almost like another one of my children– I was devastated. So much so that I think I must have cried for weeks! But God had something in mind, I just didn’t know it at the time.
There’s a lot of change happening right now, particularly if you’re in Victoria or in fact anywhere in the world. COVID-19 is impacting us all in different ways. Perhaps you’re stuck at home, perhaps you’re in a hot spot. You may have lost someone close to you or you may be in the valley. My favourite verse, possibly in the whole Bible and one I come back to so often when I’m in the valley is Romans 8:28 and it may help you too:<
