Coronavirus. I doubt there’s a single person reading this it hasn’t impacted. Many of us are reeling at the extent and speed with which the world around has changed, dramatically, within what seems like a nano-second. It’s mind boggling, isn’t it!
Everywhere I turn – internet, TV news, social media, family discussion – the question of the hour is ‘How long before this is over? When can we all just get back to normal?’
With that in mind the Lord and I started having a discussion about exactly what this ‘normal’ is that we’re all so desperate to get back to. It turns out that from His perspective normal looks a bit different to what it might be for most of us. Actually, it turns out He’s looking at this whole coronavirus thing from a Kingdom perspective. Surprised? Shouldn’t be.
