All week, I’ve thought about what I wanted to share this Sunday, March 15th, 2020. Our world seems to be in a crisis mode, and I know there are real fears with the coronavirus.
I had no idea when we boarded our ship a week ago all that would go on in the world. I couldn’t have imagined that colleges would close, sporting events would be canceled, and everyone would stock up on toilet paper. Who knew??
I have felt somewhat distanced from all that is going on, but I have been in contact with my family, and we’re doing everything we can to stay healthy on the ship.
Here is what I know: This virus is not a surprise to God. As a believer, I want to be smart and do what I’m asked to do, but I also don’t want to fall apart.
While I don’t know what tomorrow holds, my hope and my trust is knowing that no matter what, I have a God who does, and He is where I choose to place my trust.
My daughter sent me this picture of our sweet Claire. She knows she is loved and taken care of, and she has no fear.
Ladies, we are loved and taken care of too. I’m not saying that life will be perfect or that we might not get the virus, but we have a heavenly Father that loves us, and he doesn’t want us to live in fear.
When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy. Psalm 94:19
What I’m doing is every time I start to worry, I pray. I lift my concern up to God and ask Him to take my worries. He can handle them way better than I can.
Lastly, Corrie Ten Boom said this about worry, “Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.”
Let’s choose today to trust Him!
One of my favorite songs is an older song. When I’m worried or stressed, I listen to it over and over again.
Dr. Jennifer Degler and I did two videos on anxiety and fear.
Have a blessed day!
