This week’s FMF writing prompt is: TOMORROW
It’s so easy during an unprecedented time like this to let my mind wander to all the “What if?” questions. As I think about how uncertain the future is for all of us, it can be tempting to worry and become susceptible to looming despair.
But as I was getting ready for the day this morning, I decided to speak truth to myself:
In the midst of everything going on, God is still in control. He always has been, and He always will be. This virus did not catch Him by surprise. He was not only prepared for it, He knew about it from before the beginning of time, and His plan is still perfect.
Eternity with Him has not been canceled. No matter what happens in this lifetime — illness, poverty, hunger, or even death — God’s children cannot be snatched from His hand. For the believer in Jesus Christ, our hope is in Him and His promises do not fail.
If nothing else, this pandemic has reminded me just how fragile and dependent we all are. Our every breath is completely dependent on the One who “gives everyone life and breath and everything else” (Acts 17:25, NIV).
So when we’re tempted to worry, fret, or despair, remember Who you belong to.
“I don’t know what tomorrow holds, but I know Who holds tomorrow.”
“He’s got the whole world in His hands.”
