COVID-19 Blindsided Our Reality

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.”-Psalm 143:8

COVID-19 or Coronavirus has changed our lives forever. This pandemic has impacted everyone in the entire world at once. All at once, we went from pushing through the mundane activities of life to praying for Clorox wipes and Dial antibacterial soap. We can no longer gather for worship, work, a special occasion or dinner. We now have to be intentional with our virtual and video phones calls in addition to text messages and email. In the midst of washing our hands and social distancing, God is still very present. He is with each of us. Whether we have recently been laid off, do not know when we are having our next meal, work on the frontlines in healthcare or have a loved or friend on the frontlines or have been personally touched by the invisible enemy of COVID-19, God is with us.

Today’s reading is a reminder of where we should put our trust. Our trust should be in God. Yes, we were all at once blindsided by COVID-19 but that does not mean God has forsaken or forgotten about us. God is with us in the valley, on mountaintops and in between moments of our lives. I made a decision that I was going to be informed about COVID-19 but I could listen, read and discuss it at length. I made a decision I was going to keep my eyes focused on God and serve the people around me in prayer and as led by God. If I had a steady diet of COVID-19 information 24/7, I would lose my mind and forfeit the peace God has given me. 1 Peter 5:7 says, “Cast all anxiety on him because he cares for you.” Whatever we are carrying concerning COVID-19, give it to God. He can handle it. We need to trust our relationship with him to know he can handle all of our feelings, concerns and questions about COVID-19 and anything else.

Yes, we have been blindsided and forever changed by COVID-19. We have a lot of questions such as when is this going to end. In the meantime, let us love one another. Let us show patience and concern for one another. Let us pray for our world. We are all united in the fact that we have been impacted by this pandemic. We can all rise up stronger and better as a result of it. My prayer is that as we move a day closer to the end of this pandemic that we will stay in prayer and entrust every aspect of this battle to God. Our God is undefeated. He has won every battle that has come his way. He will also win this one. May God bless you and keep you safe and healthy during this time and always. Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
