The year 2020 started out pleasantly enough, but it became the unsettling year of uncertainty. It seemed our entire world came to a halt. Many businesses had to close their doors. Even churches stopped meeting in person. Millions of people had to learn how to work at home while millions more were without jobs.
As the pandemic continued to increase across the country, so did the spread of skepticism and division. The news we heard one day seemed to conflict with the news from the day before. On top of the deadly virus, we saw 2020 add politics, racial tensions, disagreements over wearing masks, and debates over reopening
schools to the mix.
The year 2020 created the perfect storm of uncertainty. When things in life seem to be blurry or unstable, how do we respond? Oh, if only our faith were strong enough to overcome the uncertainty of it all! We know Abram as a man of faith, but that faith did not prevent him from experiencing his own season of uncertainty. Let’s learn some lessons from him.
