Covid-19 has done one thing to everyone in our global world, change. Every face you see, every word we read, every speech that is spoken is about how our world has changed. This is not a story about our change; instead, this is a reminder that you have not been forsaken during this time of change.
From the Senior population sitting idle behind blank walls, babies born into incubation, black clouds of with rainfalls of despair falling on those with depression , addicts fighting addiction and to the rest of the population , you are not alone. God is here.
Under the Sun, under the stars, under the glow of kindness, under the laughter of a joke, under the wisdom of our pastors, leaders, teachers, therapist and inside the motivational print of a classic novel is reminder God is here.
A friend of mine, Mrs. C, sent me a photo of the Sea of Galilee. At first sight I smiled from the beauty of the beautiful photo. Then I too was reminded that even Jesus, our Savior, once said,
Psalm 22: 1 My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, so far from my cries of anguish? 2 My God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer, by night, but I find no rest.
We all struggle. Jesus himself struggled. We too can cry out to God for help and guidance just like Jesus himself did. You are not alone. You have not been forsaken.
