One of the things that I love in the Old Testament is how people would set up standing stones, they were a pile of stones that stood as a remembrance of how God did something amazing there. I have a box where I keep mementos of things where God showed up and did something amazing in my life. My own personal standing stones.
Even though 2020 has been a rough year, I would bet that there are some areas where God showed up. Maybe it was an unexpected financial blessing in a time of financial stress, or even a debt that was forgiven or paused until the economy recovered. It could have been that this year brought a new job opportunity, or the ability to work from home that you had been lobbying for over the last few years.
As we head toward exiting 2020 and entering into 2021, I’m challenging you to reflect back on this year and find those places to put the standing stones of your life. We have no idea what 2021 will look like, but if we can look back to this year and still see where God was working things out… perhaps, just perhaps, it will be easier to make it through what ever 2021 has in store.
