There have been very trying times in our country lately. There is the Pandemic that is causing havoc. Now there is rioting all over this country.
There is widespread panic and people are full of fear.
One of the most important things we can do is to not pass our fears onto others. Yes, we do have fear, but please do not let it spread.
There are many things that are hurting people. Think of the high school students who can’t do their sports that they love. I certainly understand that. There is also no graduation ceremony. This will be the year they will want to forget.
As Christians, we must remember that God is always there. Jesus is always there.
We don’t need to find proof that they exist. We know about faith through God’s Word and His promises.
Yes, real faith doesn’t have all the facts. There all those who don’t believe just because they don’t have all the facts. True faith takes us beyond the facts.
What does all of this have to do with riots and the Pandemic? Both of these are major storms in our lives.
These storms may be more than we can handle, and God says to turn all your worries over to Him.
Let’s make this clear…. God didn’t cause the virus, or the riots. He doesn’t want any of His people to be hurt.
Things to think about during these tough times:
What do you think God is saying during this Pandemic, and rioting?
What do your think God is doing during this time?
What can YOU do to find rest during this time. ?
Be strong for not only you, but your family. Spreading fear is like putting gasoline on a fire.
I need to remind myself, and you, that all this pain and suffering is not going to waste. God in charge and He will figure everything out for us.
He is standing in the fire with us.
I guess the overwhelming question is….What is it going to be like after the Pandemic.? What is it going to be like after the rioting stops. Only God knows, and we need to trust Him and allow Him to take action for us.
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
