March 30, 2020: How’s that for Irony?
You may not understand if something is ironic, but it basically means that something happens either with really odd timing (like when you say I really love cats, and one walks into your front yard), or it’s when opposite of what you expect to happen, happens. For me, I think it’s ironic that today is National Take a Walk in a Park Day, National Doctors Day, National Virtual Vacation Day, and National I am in Control Day. Seriously–because 1. most of us can’t go places, so a walk in the park is one thing we can do today, 2. we are so grateful and appreciative of what doctors (all healthcare workers) are doing right now for us, 3. people had to cancel travel plans so lots of us are doing virtual trips, and 4. we are so not in control today. Irony.
It is ironic to think we are in control of our lives. Right now is a perfect example–everything we thought was going to happen this month–cancelled. It’s a weird feeling. A lot of people are trying to take back control–they are trying to stock up on toilet paper, or make home schooling be as much like real school, and those are great things to do.
But at some point we need to sit and just let it all go.
Obviously, God is working out there.
I trust him to work the path as it’s supposed to be. I’m here to serve Him.
You take care of the world today Lord, show me how to be a servant today.
Praise the Lord! He is my Rock. He prepares me for war. He trains me for battle. 2 He loves me and protects me. He is my safe place high on the mountain. He rescues me. He is my shield. I trust in him.Psalm 144:1-2 (ERV)
Dear Father, I trust in You. Give me an opportunity to put goodness out to the world today. Amen.
