The “New Normal”

The past year has been such a roller coaster. So many things have changed about life- for Haiti, for America, for the world. We have adjusted and created a “new normal” so many times that I’m not sure exactly what “normal” is anymore except that it’s not normal. Everything feels like it is in a constant state of change. It is hard to find stability in a world that is constantly changing and re-arranging. So what are we supposed to do in a world that is constantly changing? We hold on to the one thing that never changes- God. The bible says in Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today, and forever. It is comforting to know that no matter what happens in this life, Jesus will never change. The plan He started this world with is the same plan He has today, nothing has changed His mind or surprised Him. Many things have happened in our world and in Haiti. Our ministries at Hope Rising may look different, but the plan is the same as it has always been. God loves Haiti, and He wants to show that love through you and I. No matter what happens this year, we can be confident in the one who keeps His promises, and who never changes.
