reflection: Begins & Ends at Home | Lisa Witherspoon
Household, home. Those words have taken on a whole new significance in the past 10 months, haven’t they? When the need to “stay home” first arose in spring 2020, I was not at all upset. Thinking it would surely be a temporary situation, I looked forward to more family time and less busyness. As time wore on, however, we ran out of board games to play, got tired of trying new recipes, and began to feel our patience with each other wearing thin.
Gracious God, thank you for those who set extraordinary examples of faith. Though our households look different and each one experiences particular challenges and blessings, we know You are present within them all. Help us to choose You, Lord, again and again and again. Give us wisdom to guide those we love along a path of faithfulness and courage to accompany strangers we meet along the way. Strengthen and embolden our faith. Shore up the places where our faith is weak. We ask these things in the name of your Holy Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
