I ask You for a blessing of peace this morning. Even as the rain washes dust and cobwebs off of porches and pollen off of cars, may Your gentle presence wash away our concern over today's circumstances.
You are the King over the Present. Not one detail slips through Your fingers.
You are the King over the Past. Not one mistake or pain can thwart Your plans for us.
You are the King over the Future. Not one blessing will be forgotten or misplaced.
COVID may have been a shock to us, but You saw it coming. Nothing has taken You by surprise. Some people are saying that 2020 is lost, but that is a lie we refuse to believe. Because if there is one thing You love to do ... it is save what is lost.
You know how to make miracles out of mud.
We have six months to go. This year isn't over. So it is with expectant joy we say ...
Do it again, Lord.
In Jesus's name. Amen.
