In heaven there is no Situation Room, there is no Disaster Recovery Plan, and no one is selling insurance! Do you know why? Because God is Unsurprisable! Page after page in the scriptures we are reminded that nothing takes The Creator by surprise.
So then, in the light of that truth, how do we believers (those who call themselves by the name of this Unsurprisable God) handle international crises like the one we're facing now?

I have walked across galaxies just to look upon you.
Stars I have used as stepping stones to reach you.
The night sky is simply a curtain drawn and about to be opened to a new day.

Lift your voices together and sing and I will gather them like the lilies in the spring.
Your worship and praise have been heard.

He is the one who replaces calloused hearts, hearts that have been turned to stone. Ezekiel 36:26 "And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh."
Psalm 139:1 "O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me."
Nothing in 2019 came easy, there have been some setbacks, but some significant victories too.
In many ways 2019 reminded me a lot of the whole decade just past. At the very end of 2009 my family and I moved to Gig Harbor in Washington State from Johannesburg, South Africa. The most difficult thing I have ever done!
By God’s Grace we are still here, I'm not in the best of shape, but we have survived and we’ve had the privilege of bringing God’s Kingdom with us.
