Back in December we watched from a distance as the virus hit China. The number of victims sky-rocketed. But that was China. Surely we were safe. Surprise!
Social isolation. Quarantine. Businesses shutting down. Our nation has been rocked, and many are living in fear. How will we pay our bills? What if we get sick? What if a family member gets sick? How long will this last? How long will our children be out of school? What about buying food, medical supplies and of course, toilet paper.
Whoa! That's a lot.
A scripture I go to often is: Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths."
This virus is BIG! But as big as it is, it is no match for our God. He is HUGE! I find it hard to comprehend everything that's happening right now, but there is one thing I know for certain. None of this took God by surprise. He's not up in heaven chewing his nails, wondering what to do. (Believe it or not, His Word speaks of this in prophecy.)
As confusing as this time is, we have a God that we can Trust, no matter what. If we lean on our feeble understanding, on what we hear and see on TV or the social media, we will freak out! But we have an amazing God who is with us always, and will direct our paths. He promised in His Word, that He would never leave us or forsake us, and He is a God of His Word! Trust Him.
So, I asked the question, how are you surviving quarantine? I would love to hear, or read, some of the positive things, the blessings, that are taking place for you and your family. Or, your fears. What is your go-to scripture or quote during difficult times? Take a minute and share them. Who knows, they may just be what someone else needs for encouragement.
We may be quarantined, but we can still come together.
