Blogs

In the waiting

by Lucy Lyell // June 2020

I write this first LMW blog in the midst of the strangest of times, extraordinary summer weather, and yet unable to fully embrace it with friends and family. I’m conscious that this time of lockdown has probably left us all really at sea with the routines and responsibilities we are normally tasked with. Working from home, balancing the demands of children normally at school, cancelling plans that have been in the diary for months. Spending time just with our immediate families is both a breather from the busyness of ministry, but also unnaturally intense. I hope I am not alone in finding time on screen and everything being virtual utterly exhausting. 

Having said this, I would love to encourage you in this season of waiting, waiting for normality to resume, waiting for when we can meet again physically with our church families and others. This song Take Courage – Bethel Music is such an encouragement to trust in the current unknown and to know that God works in the waiting that we are being forced to do at the moment. Take courage dear sisters in Christ, our Heavenly Father is in this waiting. Do not forget His great faithfulness. He is not, never failing in this. I pray for all of us that we will find strength in His word this week & the joy to keep going in Him.

Lucy is the chair of the LMW Committee.
