A Shift in Perspective

It is easy to lose our perspective in the valley seasons of life. At times it can feel as though we are trapped in a pit surrounded by insurmountable problems with no way out. Perhaps you are experiencing a valley season right now. In some ways, we are all in a valley season together as a result of the Covid 19 pandemic, the economic shutdown and the civil unrest and tension that our nation is experiencing. But, there are some problems that are unique to you and your situation. If the schools don't open, some of you are wondering how you will  homeschool your children and work at the same time. Some of you have a loved one who is desperately ill from the virus and some of  you may have lost a loved one. Maybe you have suffered a job loss. You may feel desperate for some fellowship but your church is still unable to open up and meet in person. You may live in a city that is experiencing rioting and upheaval. Your business may be suffering. You may be a heavy hearted and discouraged and scared wondering if the racial division and inequalities in our nations will ever change. What constitutes a valley season for you and me is as diverse and unique as we are. But, the ways to get through a valley season pertain to all of us in spite of the uniqueness of our struggles.  (Join me for the rest of this post on Sunday, August 9th, at Woman to Woman Ministries, where each Sunday I share a bit of Sunday Soul Food!)
