There is no such thing as normal.
There is routine, there is what you are used to, there is “how things used to be”, but there is no normal.
Life changes, jobs change, children grow, people pass away, new seasons of life come whether you are prepared for them or not.
Stop worrying about being “normal” or working to get things “back to normal”.
“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lordʼs holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
Ephesians 3:17-19 NIV
Being rooted and established in Christ means that He is your anchor, your security, your place of rest in the midst of chaos. His love is not shaken. You hope can rest on Him and not in your present circumstances.
Let go of trying to be normal and focus on being established in love with roots that grow deep in the soil of who Jesus is.
Give Him room in your heart and let Him live through you.
New seasons bring new normals but Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.
Draw your security from God today and dig in to get the most from this time in your life.
