More From Chris Mewhirter

December 2, 2020 by Chris Mewhirter (Nebraska, USA)

I sit here two years after sending in my devotion and look at how my life has changed since then. I now live in Minnesota and work in Iowa. COVID-19 is the most talked-about news that I hear, followed by the presidential election. I do still have the bench that I restored, and it is in my front yard. It looks a little weathered compared to the freshly remodeled version, but just like life should be, it’s functional and ready to be restored at any time.  

Online worship has not been as bad for me as some others, as I find it easier watching our worship service than being there in person. I struggle to not have my mind wander as I look over the congregation. 

I know that God has me where I’m at for a reason and each day, week, and year, I’m understanding what that is. I know that soon it’ll be completely revealed and I can make my move to follow it. 

God bless!
