Good and more good!

17 Nov

My friend Mel Wild’s recent blog post ‘The Ultimate Immune System’, inspired the following.

When life brings disruptions, such as the ‘pandemic’, do we recoil and complain?  Or do embrace it as a golden opportunity to develop a new M.O. (mode of operation) for our lives?  Disruptions can be good and more good… depending on our basic perspectives on life and God.

Good
Some of us were stuck in the same ol’, same ol’… we’d grown overly familiar and very chummy with our comfortable but boring rut.  That rut was not giving us life… nor affording any opportunities for new life in our lives.  And sadly, we would have never gotten out of our rut unless something disruptive hadn’t come along.

So disruption, in this case, is good… even though it is disturbing and may be stressful.  O, it may require some purposeful activation, and a little help from others around us, but it leads us to better places… and a better M.O.

Even more good
There are others of us who are always looking for fresh frontiers because if we’re not moving, then we’re getting stale… and that’s not acceptable.  A ‘disruption’ becomes a welcomed opportunity to explore new M.O. for multiple areas of life.  Is disruption ruling you… or are you ruling over your disruption?  If you look at it from this perspective, this time of global disruption is like a pipin’ hot meal from Heaven, served up on a platter.  🙂

Really!  It’s like the ‘is-the-glass-half-full-or-half-empty’, sort of thing.  How do we view it?  Is it “Amen!” or is it, “O, me!”

Is this Biblical?
Take a look at Isa 60:2.  When do we get to shine?  When is our light shining the brightest?  When is our light most effective?  It’s right in the middle of the darkest darkness!!!!!

“For, look, darkness covers the earth and deep darkness covers the nations, but the Lord shines on you; his splendor appears over you.” – Isa 60:2

Expect the Light of Heaven in these times!  Look for it.  Greet it with open arms!  Embrace it!  Move into something brand new!

This could be one of the best transition times in your life.  It is certainly becoming that for me on several different fronts.
