Isaiah 43:19-21 New International Version (NIV)
19 See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
20 The wild animals honor me,
the jackals and the owls,
because I provide water in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland,
to give drink to my people, my chosen,
21 the people I formed for myself
that they may proclaim my praise.
I think of spring as being a refreshing time of life. The sun, flowers, grass growing and weather changing. Kids would be out of school this week for spring break where I live. Some parents had plans to travel and do special things with their kids. Now they are all home and figuring out what works for their family. Some I hear are planning games, watching movies and having popcorn. We are learning the true meaning of family! Even for those who live alone, many are getting phone calls, learning face time or Facebook. Their are new ways of communication to older people. What if it this happened when I was a kid? There was no internet or iPhones. There was no zoom calls or major connections while staying home. People are checking on older people and helping with groceries. People are helping people and that's love.
I do see God doing a new thing. I would ask that you join me today in prayer for doctors, nurses, hospital workers, police office and anyone who is working still. Pray protection and there will be no fear of doing their jobs. Pray blessings and let us give honor to all people who work right now. There are truck drivers and so many traveling to bring stores supplies. Pray for anyone who comes to your mind.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. Please pray for my family, friends and me. Let us pray for kids everywhere. I can only imagine being a kid on spring break and told no we can't go on vacation or that special birthday event or whatever you had planned. Trying to understand is harder for so many.
Purpose this a good day!
