Good morning everyone! I’m going to begin our time by reading just 5 words from a Bible verse. In Philippians 1:12, Paul is writing about something bad that happened to him, and he says, “What has happened to me...”
Before we see exactly how Paul continues, what about us? Has anyone here ever had something bad happen in your life? If you’ve been living on planet earth in 2020, then the answer is yes. We’ve all had the bad experience of a pandemic happening to us.
How do we respond to that? What do we say? We might say things like "What has happened to me/us…
- has messed up our plans"
- has messed up our finances"
- has stressed our relationships"
- has messed up our work"
- has messed up our entertainment"
- has messed up our sense of control"
