Just as the Israelites built altars of remembrance, during this Gratitude Walk we are going to go back in time and reflect on God’s goodness over the course of this year. As the walls came in and rhythms we once knew came to a halt, how did God work? How was He faithful? How did He sustain you in impossible situations?
This is for all of us – while I have tailored the experience to be kid-friendly, I hope that COD families of all ages will come. You’ll have the chance to make a yearbook of sorts, and to contribute to a public display of God’s faithfulness throughout this year.
2020 has been a historic year full of the unexpected and lots of uncharted waters. When the pandemic first broke out in March, I sensed God telling me He was on the move. I was to buckle in, hold on tight and keep my eyes on Him, because He was going to set the table for a display of His greatness. There have been a bunch of bumps along the way, but nothing out of God’s plan. The Father has not left us or forsaken us. He’s been resetting, rebuilding, creating, and moving.
As we embark on this Gratitude Walk, let’s remember the goodness of our God. Let our praise and testimony be a sweet aroma of worship and an example to our children. May the Holy Spirit fill us with undeniable reminders of how God sustained us. May these stories become a family keepsake that your children and your grandchildren come to remember 2020 by. May 2020 not be defined by the things of this world or what the media says, but by the tireless faithfulness of our Lord Jesus Christ and His tender mercy poured out on us.
