Jesus' Mercy Changes Me, We and the World

The Covidcoaster

This is a term that a group of friends shared with me recently.  It’s used to describe how we find ourselves feeling on a regular basis.  You know, one minute I’m counting my blessings for time at home, baking bread and catching up with old friends; the next minute lamenting normalcy in going to dinner, worshipping or visiting friends in person, or taking a hike without 3,000 others (and 1/2 or more without any mask considerations!) Fellow worshipers, let me introduce you to Covidcoaster.

Remember, everyone is experiencing some type of covidcoaster--it’s turning our world upside down. No one is escaping this.  No one.  Yet, God is on this coaster with us.  In fact, he’s in the front seat.  As Lucado (7/21/20) reminded us, “Joseph said, ‘You meant evil against me; but God meant it for good'(Genesis 50:20).  It’s the repeated pattern in Scripture.  Evil. God. Good. Trust God.  No, really trust Him.  God will make good out of this mess.
