As lockdown restrictions ease by an inch tomorrow, there's a lot of mixed feelings. My prayer is that we will continue to seek the Lord first, in all things. As our emotions rise, and frustrations tip over, the Rock on which we stand remains our firm foundation, he has not moved.
"for from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen" (Rom 11:36).
May we act, speak and move for his glory alone.
