“For we are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10

Thoughts from the Principal…         

If you were you raised in the 1960’s and 1970’s you may remember what I am about to write about.  If you are much younger than I am, you will have to take my word for it.

       As I was growing up, the years 2020 and following were used often in science fiction stories.  I remember many stories that predicted that in 2020 cars would fly, robots would do all the work, planets were vacation destinations, or even that the earth would be reduced to a nuclear waste area.  In short, science fiction stories suggested that the world would be the same as it was for the Jetson family.  (If you don’t know who the Jetsons are, you can Google them.)

As we now live in 2021, the world didn’t quite end up the way science fiction suggested it would.  There are technological advancements that would have been mind-boggling to consider back in the 70’s to be sure.  But cars aren’t like little flying saucers and nobody is heading to Venus for a vacation anytime soon.  

I tell you that to tell you this:

God is the only one who knows our future.  We can plan ahead and think ahead, but we really don’t know.  A year ago on January 11th, 2020, would you even have imagined the events that happened between then and now?  I know I didn’t.  And who knows what will happen in the next 365 days?  It can be scary to think about.

That’s why being a Christian is so comforting.  We don’t have to be nervous or scared about the future because we know that God has it taken care of.  We don’t have to worry about what may happen.  We live each day with the confidence that God is in control.  We live each day to its fullest and let God worry about the future.  There are two Bible passages that I turn to when I start to wonder about what’s going to happen.  Check out Jeremiah 29:11 and Romans 8:28. These passages give me such great comfort and confidence as I live my life.
