Amanda’s Reflections On The Week

Amanda’s Reflections On The Week

Well,

Here we are friends, already into our third week and almost at our 3rd Sunday without church within the walls of our building.

What are you missing?

What are you looking forward to resuming after this time of lockdown is over?

This week I came across a really thought-provoking message on Facebook…

“In the rush to return to normal, use this time to consider which parts of normal are worth rushing back to” by Dave Hollis.

Interesting words…

In this new normal where each day melds into another, where days can seemingly be without meaning or without purpose as we leave behind our old selves, perhaps we can discover anew who we are inside… as we go about creating new meaning and new purpose within our days?

I‘ve spent some time each day this week in the discipline of reflecting on my day, noting what has been meaningful that day, what activities have brought me pleasure, and where I have sensed God in the midst of it all.

And I’m beginning to sense a new rhythm and new ways of being as I do.

And I can’t help but wonder if when all of this is over there might be some things that I don’t want to return to normal…

What about you?

What are you not missing about life before?

What areas of your life are you already beginning to see changes for the better?

God is unchanging but is present to us now….

Why not share some of these thoughts with God and listen for what He says?

Blessings,

Amanda
