At our Aglow staff gathering to start off the year, Jane Hansen Hoyt’s word for the year was to be EXPECTANT. I sensed the Lord giving me the word HOPE for this year. I could feel the prophetic promise in the air and the clear 20/20 vision the year would bring. I had full anticipation 2020 was going to be a great year.
What a Year
First, Coronavirus spreads into a worldwide pandemic. Something I have never seen in my lifetime or anyone else for that matter. Everything shutdown. Everyone around the world in quarantine.
Then, the death of George Floyd at the hands of brutal police actions, tears open deep racial wounds. Cries for justice and reform sweep the U.S.
Protests…Riots… Seattle Autonomous Zone.
Tension…Debate…Opinions…Arguments…Division…Cancel Culture…War of Words.
The airwaves are full of these things. Does anyone else feel a bit overwhelmed? The need to unplug? I have found myself asking, Lord what can I do? He has been speaking to me about 5 “L” words.
