A reflective Journey by Hannah N’guni
There is no denying how life changing the year 2020 had been, certainly a year that will be remembered for so many reasons. In a moment of reflection, I got convicted that somewhere along the way I seemed to have overlooked the truth of God’s faithfulness. I had to repent. In time of crisis, it is easy to magnify the fear and chaos all around to the point God seems “less” able, loving, caring, mighty e.t.c. Not just in what we say but even in how we think or act, knowingly or unknowingly. But the truth is, He has not changed! In times of uncertainty, He remains certain. When we are faithless, He remains faithful (2 Timothy 2:13).
Can you relate to these lines in Fred Hammond’s song ‘Be magnified’?
“I have made You too small in my eyes, oh Lord, forgive me
And I have believed in a lie, that You are unable to help me …
I have leaned on a wisdom of men, oh Lord, forgive me
And I have responded to them instead of Your light and Your mercy…”
An intentional shift in focus on to what is always true about God, what He expects of His children and what He has already made available to us, will position us to live the fulfilled life Jesus came to give (John 10:10) even in this season. We learn these truths all through the Bible. So, in this first quarter of 2021, let us shift the focus and choose to remember
As we venture into the new year with so many uncertainties; are we going to be in more lock down , should I get the vaccine, is it safe to go out. The Team at She is Authentic will dedicate the first quarter of 2021 to remember the goodness of God. We have chosen to intentionally set aside our time to draw closer to God and his word.
