All of a sudden it seems we are faced with the reality of the brokenness of our world. We are currently walking in uncertain times where we live and for many of our loved ones around the world there is a real sense of fear surrounding this pandemic and the future of our world. There are so many questions, fear, worry and stress being experienced by so many.
Trusting in God and taking him daily at his word is important at this time in remaining calm and not letting a spirit of fear govern our thoughts.
At Youth Unlimited™ YFC Comox Valley, we are looking to find creative ways to continue to connect with youth that may not have happened before this pandemic began. As myself and the Board spent time this week in prayer I was reminded of the importance of coming to the Lord. Psalm 46:1 came to mind. “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” With many things taken away from us or put on hold, routines thrown off and many real fears arising it may feel like everything is striped away. We are left with the reality that we have a God and that he is in control and he is doing something at this time. Perhaps preparing a “new way” like creating rivers in the desert, creating pathways through wildness and barren lands. God is moving; let's see what he will do.
With the news that our schools are closed in SD71 and maybe beyond the normal spring break time, there will be effective immediately a pause on all YFC programming until this COVID-19 crisis is cleared. Knowing this, we are looking for ways to continue to have an impact on the lives of students as we feel that this can be an opportunity for us to do something new.
Jesus is in control. He has gone before us and prepared good things for us to walk in. Our current times are no surprise to him. Knowing this and by faith, we choose to seek Jesus in prayer, seeking Him and His direction. His work never ceases His saving presence is always at work. So by His Holy Spirit we go in power and continue to bring the Gospel to the lives of Youth, at the same time as adhering to the wisdom and guidance of our governing health authorities and Government.
In the coming days and weeks we will do our best to keep you updated with any new communications or resources via our website and social media platforms. If you have any questions please feel free to visit our website for contact information. May God grant you comfort and wisdom by His grace.
