Press On

Let us acknowledge the Lord;
    let us press on to acknowledge him.
As surely as the sun rises,
    he will appear;
he will come to us like the winter rains,
    like the spring rains that water the earth.
Hosea 6:3 (NIV)

My husband and I are in our fifth week of working/staying home. It isn’t a whole lot different for me since being at home is my normal operating procedure. It is something new for my husband though. We’re blessed he has a job that enables him to work from home.

Perhaps you’re like us in that our days seem to all blur together. It’s hard to tell which day of the week it is since we don’t have any normal activities we’re going to. Not that we had a lot. But going to choir practice midweek, church and Sunday school on Sundays, with a sprinkling of activities throughout the month made the weeks and even days go faster.

Only the Lord knows what’s still ahead of us. I’m so thankful to know He’s in control. We can trust Him with our future. We’re able to hold on, because we know our Lord can be trusted.

But I don’t want to merely hold on… I also want to press on. I want others to see through me the hope we have in the Lord. We may live in unprecedented times, but we know WHO is in control. Press On. Put your faith in God. Ask Him to help and encourage you. Keep trusting the Lord. He’s got this.
