What else? I asked the Lord the other night. What else will 2020 be like?
“It will be a year of Surprises,” he said. “Can you define surprise?”
Hmm. I gave that some thought.
Unexpected, not anticipated, not predicted, not even imagined.
They can be things or events, I suppose. Life-changing, maybe. Something you didn’t or can’t prepare for in advance.
Surprises can be good, bad, or neutral; puzzling, thought-provoking or fascinating.
Perhaps joyous, exciting, gratifying and satisfying. Those would be good.
Or shocking, horrifying, grievous or worrisome. Repugnant. Not good.
Whatever they are, there will be a few in 2020.
We need to keep our spiritual eyes out.

What will 2020 be like? I asked the Lord tonight.
“Pause. Full Stop. Go back,” he said.
He showed me people on the wrong path because of wrong decisions in the past.
Unhappy. Unsuccessful. Dissatisfied. Depressed.
Frustrated. Fearful. Anxious. Angry.
I saw chaotic situations and confused circumstances, small and large communities of people at odds with each other. Coworkers. Families. Friends. Men and women in business, religion, and government.
In the coming days, weeks and months, the Lord will get his message across, if he has to yell.
Pause! Full stop! Go back!
Go back to where you made the wrong decision, the wrong turn. Where you were faced with two paths and you chose the wrong one. Set aside ego and pride, admit your mistake – your wrong – and begin again on the right path. (In other words, I thought, repent.)
And if they don’t, I wondered? One way or the other, 2020 will be an interesting year.
