Hi this is Chris Benjamin, the director for the Salvation Army sound. We want to take this opportunity to share some additional messages of encouragement with you from some of our hosts from shows like 24th of life in a heartbeat. We just pray that these are an extra blessing to you. If they are a sham with a friend.
Now I first felt that 1/2 an hour ago when I heard that our governor canceled for the rest of the year. I have decided that I'm going to reinterpret and redefine how you look at this the other day I came to work and you know my time is been really really precious because I been trying to balance the whole homeschool thing with all the demands here at the core and just feeling account waste a single second. And I believe were really little, you know, worried about that.
So the other day I came to work and realized I have left my computer at home about a 15 minute drive back to get the bad 15 minutes to go get it and then come back again and I was frustrated because that's 1/2 an hour lost, and then I thought. Now I'm not I'm not getting let that happen. I'm going to decide to use this time in a godly way.
What what could I do what we got. Have me do.
What's a good idea so I was able to go on Bluetooth and make two very important pastoral calls so that was good. I was initially upset but I decided note. Let's redefine this time. Let's rework this lets me make it work and that it was so I'm trying to take on that attitude today as I find out that we will continue homeschool for the rest of the year and I don't even know what entirely.
That's going to look like. But how can I reinterpret, redefine, rework this so that it's for the benefit of the children for the benefit of my family and so that we are you happy and were okay.
So really, that is what God does with us right. I mean everything about my life and your life in Christ been redefined, reworked, reimagined re-re-re-re-everything right. It's been made wonderful by Christ.
Even though it started out one way he reworks us and shapes us into the image of Christ by the Holy Spirit works in our lives and designs us to be imitations of Christ.
Over time, so that is what he has always modeled for us everything being re-created everything problematic being made beautiful and good.
So here's my challenge to myself and to maybe some of you out there to. How can we take this thing for many of us, it's the homeschooling thing and the fact that our kids will people going back this year.
How can we take that or whatever other challenges opposed to us to this whole over 19 time of isolation, social distancing, how can we re-form that into something beautiful and good. God is never short of ideas, and he always makes good things that bad things we know that from Romans 828 so get creative. Let's share let's think if you found out a way to take a bad situation related to this whole ordeal and and make good love to hear about it. Let's let's we deem this time. For the sake of Christ. God bless
