Doors Will Open, and Doors Will Close

To say the year of 2020 has been overwhelming would be an understatement. For as long as I can remember, there has always been some mystique etched in my mind about the year 2020.  What will happen? What won’t happen?  By now, I believe that everyone has their own version of what the year has turned out to be.  I am hoping that 2021 will have a much better outcome. 

     With the onset of Covid 19, it’s my interpretation that many people may have taken the eventual pandemic for granted.  All of a sudden, and out of nowhere, the way we go about our daily lives was interrupted.  Can’t go to church because of the dangers associated with the virus. Schools are closed, businesses have been closed and in some cases, even shut down permanently.  Everywhere I go, I must wear a mask or protective covering to ensure that I do get infected or possibly infect someone else.  Then a new word was even invented as a result of our new way of living; social distancing. Oh, how things have changed.

     Even with all of the discourse and confusion, God has continued to show His might and power. While some things have been taken away, He has replaced them with even greater ones.  With the new normal, many business owners including myself have been forced to develop new ways of how business is done.  As a result, our businesses have flourished and become even more dynamic.  All that I am left with to think is, but God.

I’m excited about what God is preparing for everyone in 2021.  While we are closing out the year, we must continue to be mindful of all of the things that God didn’t allow to happen, and appreciate what He has.  What I continue to learn is when God takes some things away, He always replaces them with even greater things.  When one door closes, another one will open. Knowing this, we must stay encouraged and continue to pursue our purpose. More than anything, we must always trust God.
