An Adaptable Spirit

2020 has tested us in our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. We long for what we had and yearn for the sense of normalcy we had grown accustomed to. 

But God. . . God is calling us to be mindful of our adaptability that is a part of His beautiful creation. God is reminding us to draw close to His faithfulness to each of us. God is leading us along the journey so we should find comfort, confidence and trust by embracing each day even though the road can be weary and filled with pain. 

When we place our trust in this world, we will be filled with misery so let's put our trust and life in God at all times. 

Psalm 62:8 reminds us "Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us." "For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:" (Ecclesiastes 3:1)


Let us trust in God as He leads us to embrace and adapt to this season. Adaptability is an important and necessary quality of a faithful Christian. As situations and conditions change, we must adapt accordingly while being steadfast in our faith and trust in God. Being adaptable often requires living above circumstance and conditions as well as being open to do things God's way. It requires a humility in ourselves as we yield our will and mind to God and His plan. What gain is there in your life to fight or desire that which is currently elusive? It only adds stress, worry, fear and frustrations. Embrace the opportunity of the day. Adapt with a joyful spirit and "let not your heart be troubled" (John 14:1) Seize each day with a joyous love, yes even on tough days, for God is right there with you. 

With an adaptable spirit, we can help to encourage each other and lift each other up. Embrace this opportunity to unite and continue our work as Christians with an unwavering joy in Christ. Let us understand the greatest example from God who adapted His very being, coming to earth in human form of Jesus, adapting from the Son of God to Son of all humanity. 

Blessings and Joy,
