Thought for the day: As we go through each day with the fear of this pandemic nagging in our minds, I am reminded by the above scripture that we honestly don’t need to live our days in fear. God is here beside each of us on this chaotic journey we find ourselves in the midst of.
Once when my father was ill, my family and I were all very worried about him. Daddy was not one to worry over anything. He once made the comment, “what is the worst thing that could happen? If I should die, I get to go be with Jesus and my family that are in heaven waiting on me.” I loved his vision and often think about those words he shared with us at that time.
My father always used to call my mother a worry wart, saying she could make a mountain out of a mole hill! I believe he had that pegged just about right as she worried about EVERYTHING. I share this to say I share a little of these traits from both parents, I do sometimes worry, however I often remember my fathers words and can overcome that sense of dread and panic.
I believe our Father in Heaven would be saying something like my father did during a time such as this. It is easy to fall into feelings of anxiety and worry. We need to remember God’s promise to be with us. After all, he gave us his only son for the salvation of the world. He would not leave his children in times of need.
Let’s join together and pray daily for those suffering from Covid 19, those who are caring for the sick, and those that are seeking to get the vaccine. Let us pray for those that experience anxiety and worry, that they may be reminded of God’s unconditional love for his children.
Prayer: Watchful and caring God, together we seek you for comfort and direction. As we do our part by wearing our masks and social distancing, help us to remember you are with us throughout our lives, for You will never leave or forsake us. Let us find ourselves useful by praying for others, together. This we pray in the beloved name of your son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
