This is a message to simply remind you of a few things that we feel are important at this time. We find ourselves in strange times that raise our anxieties, because they force us to look at our powerlessness. I had to buy milk yesterday and saw a lot of people who might, or might not, be carrying germs around the store. I was reminded that no matter how strong my immune system, how many gloves or masks I wear, or what other precautions I take I am still vulnerable. Ultimately, I have to rely on the grace of God to get me through these strange times.
That’s where we all stand right now. Things can be really scary right now if you focus only on the scary. This is a time to take all the precautions in the world. And also trust totally in the grace of God.
This is a time to increase your spiritual life: more prayer, more reflection, more Bible study time. Read John 1:1-8 and ask yourself where the light is shining in all this darkness. In the midst of the stress and chaos, look around for the light and remember that promise; the darkness never overcomes the light. No matter how stressful and chaotic life might be right now, the light will always shine.
