The stay at home order has us all going through the various stages. Shock. Adjustment. Rhythm. And now? Endurance. While the end of the tunnel can be seen for some, for others tensions continue to rise.

We are in a stage of endurance when we strain and feel the full weight of the burden and task at hand. The key is focus.

Plans change. Purpose doesn’t.

-Ted Cunningham

This pandemic has allowed us time to refocus and recalibrate. Now it’s time to get serious and endure. Operations may look different. Plans may have changed. But the call, the purpose does not.

I encourage you to endure. Focus. As strain becomes real, activate your faith and perseverance.

God does not change. The same expectations you had of Him before coronavirus should be the same now. He is still your only Provider. Your only Healer. Faithful. Trustworthy. He still equips those he has called. Even in the midst of pandemics.

Pray Isaiah 7:9

Father, your word says if I “do not stand firm in [my] faith, [I] will not stand at all.” I ask for your strength to endure. Grant me creativity to solve problems impacting this world for your kingdom and purposes.
