Maybe THIS is THAT Year
Maybe THIS is THAT year someone was supposed to have more time.
Maybe THIS is THAT year someone did NOT miss their child’s special birthday because of their work conference, the fair, the big game, the college reunion, or the VBS prep that DIDN’T happen.
Maybe THIS is THAT year someone had more time at the lake, the cabin, their parents, their grandchildren’s house, their garden, their home.
Maybe THIS is THAT year someone learned new things, taught a youngster, wrote a book, tried to cook, cleaned out the garage, found a new job, wrote a song, made new adventures.
Maybe THIS is THAT year someone smiled more, heard the birds, went outside, listened to the rain, fell in love, held a hand, touched a heart, took a moment to cry, sat quietly, learned to be OK with being alone.
Maybe THIS is THAT year someone heard the Lord calling, reconciled their past, felt healed, forgave someone, was forgiven, met Jesus.
Maybe God says: I have been waiting for you. This year was My Year to find you too.
Maybe THIS is THAT year for all these things, all those things, no one ever usually got around to do.
Maybe THIS is THAT year set aside for someone special, like you.
Maybe THIS is THAT year special things got arranged, just for you.
Enjoy this year. Life is a gift.
2020 should give hindsight of how many ways God has blessed you.
