Eventually we had to have a post about 2020, so since it’s the 20th today it seemed right. 2020 is the year we’re in, but it’s also the number to measure how good your eyes are. Fun fact: did you know that 20/20 isn’t perfect vision, but it’s average? 20/15 is better than 20/20. And did you know that the US is the only country to use this–because it’s based on being 20 feet away from an eye chart. Everywhere else? It’s based on meters, so average vision is 6/6. I kid you not.
We do not have perfect vision. We think we know where we are headed, and we make plans, but God often has other plans. Think about how things are right now in life–nobody saw having to stay at home as the plan.
It’s possible you’re living in a world of disappointment right now. Your season may have been cancelled. You may not be able to have a birthday party. You may even be wishing you could actually go to school instead of remote learning. There’s a lot to wish for differently right now.
It’s okay to feel that way. But we have to get past it and remember who does have perfect vision. God sees us. And he sees our future. He knows how the next month is going to go. Trust and don’t lose hope, even if you’re a bit disappointed in 2020 so far.
God will make everything right. He will make you strong. He will support you and keep you from falling. He is the God who gives all grace. He chose you to share in his glory in Christ. That glory will continue forever. 11 All power is his forever. Amen.
1 Peter 5:10-11 (ERV)
Dear Father, I’m disappointed and frustrated right now, give me your grace, your joy, hope, and your strength. And not just for me, but for everyone hurting right now. Amen.
