What do you when things fall apart?




Yesterday I found out that a conference I was really looking forward to is being canceled due to COVID-19. Not postponed, canceled.
When I found out, I was at first shocked, praying to God that it was somehow a mistake and that we would still have it, I would be fine even if it was postponed to September. Then I was just really sad. Like someone had torn apart my favorite book. There was an aching in my heart that just wouldn't go away.
I'm sure that is how many of us feel right now. Like everything you have been looking forward to is not going to happen. We are all stuck at home and have nothing to look forward to. Most of us can't even look forward to church on Sunday because it's either canceled or it's being live-streamed and we can't have fellowship with Christians other than our families.

What do you do when things like this happen? When your world is falling apart like this and you can't really do anything about it? When things change and there's nothing you can do to stop it?
The truth is, nothing in this life is permanent. The only thing you can truly rely on is God and His promises to us. 

When I had that terrible aching feeling that just pulled me down and put me in a bad mood, I hated it. I didn't want to feel that way the rest of the day and I knew it wasn't from God. So I put on some praise music and just poured my heart out to Him. And afterward, I felt a lot better.

So, when life falls apart, the first thing to do is to praise God and rest in His presence. Trust that He has everything under control and that nothing happens without His notice.

That's all I've got for today, I hope you got something out of that very short post.

I'll see y'all next week.
God bless.
