Times of Refreshing are needed by all of us. As I write this, the Covid-19 Corona Virus has thrust us into the middle of a great pandemic. Many people are sick. Many are dying. The country is shut down in many areas.
Small businesses are struggling.
This is the first blog post specifically written for this website that overtly displays the faith-based foundation of my writing, speaking, and coaching business.
Others with different points of view are certainly welcome here. I will try to be respectful of you. Please respect where I come from too.
Will there be recovery?
Easter represents the most hopeful time of year for Christians. It has aspects of the Gospel, the Good News.
The Good News included bad news. Jesus was dead. They crucified Him, and He went through terrible suffering.
But, He rose from the dead. Because He lives, we shall live also. That is the blessed hope of all who receive Him as Savior and Lord.
In Acts 3:11-6, we have the story of Peter explaining what happened when the crowd saw a man, lame from birth, rise up and walk. He even leapt for joy.
In this explanation, Peter included a promise that times of refreshing would come.
We certainly apply that spiritually, but we also look for the hope that it gives to business owners going through challenging times.
Here is a video dealing with just this topic

In the darkest hour, Jesus arose. In the dark hours of our businesses, may the times of refreshing come too.
You may not have been able to go to church on this Easter Sunday. Most of us did not. Than God for online technology. Many pastors across America learned new skills for live-streaming. Maybe that will continue when we go back to live services in our own facilities. Then the word will get out to more than we were reaching before.
I pray for your times of refreshing.
