This post is part of my series for Write 31 Days (writing on a prompt every day during the month of October). I may not be posting on the blog every day, but you can find an index page where all the posts in the series will be added here. The prompt today is “always.”
Jesus replied, “My Father is always working, and so am I.” (John 5:17 NLT)
Sometimes it’s hard to see where God is working, but this verse reminds that he is – always.
Over the last eighteen months there have been times when I’ve wondered. Was God really at work in this pandemic? Was there any point to everything that was happening? I could see how so much of the good work God had been doing at the start of 2020 had been disrupted, and it didn’t seem to make any sense.
But while there’s still a lot I don’t understand, one thing I’ve seen is that God has been working.
I know of two people who have come to faith recently, and for both of them the pandemic played a key part by forcing them to stop. This gave them time to reflect, and set them on a journey towards knowing God.
Just two small individual stories, but God has been working, and it has been an encouragement to me to be able to walk alongside them at various points in their journey.
It reminds me that he is always active and encourages me to keep my eyes open. Where is God working and what part does he want me to play?
