“Give us today the food we need, …”
The weather changes. The sports team wins or loses. How do we feel? All sometimes can be summed up with, “What a difference a day makes”. Does a day make a difference? It sure does to Amazon who along with raising Prime Membership fees to $119 annually, will eliminate 2-day Prime shipping and go to 1-day or same day. Yes, a day can make a difference. As we read or heard about this, we might have thought, “There’s Amazon again disrupting”. It’s true, but stop for a moment and think how much retooling, work and investment it will take them to go to 1-day all the time. It’s a bold decision and once again, love ‘em or hate ‘em, Amazon is pushing the envelope that they created in the first place.
We who celebrate Easter all year round know very well the difference a day made in the life and death of Jesus and all of His followers then and now. Isn’t this how God works? We might be in a place where we feel trapped and we don’t like it and want to get out at whatever costs needed. And just when we think we never will, God answers our prayers and He delivers. He doesn’t always remove us from where we are, but something will change. It’s not always for the better, even though many times it is, but regardless, we have to zoom out and realize that God’s timing to turn the page and reveal a new day is not on our timing. But when He does deliver that new day to us, it is always with a difference to be made. We just have to trust and believe that the new day is coming.
