It’s July 30, the end of another month in 2020, the year that most of us wish would just go away. How many of us are blessed to not have contracted the Covid virus or have family members that are unaffected as well? How many know someone who survived this illness and has recovered? For all those good examples, I am very thankful. Yet, some days I feel afraid because of the uncertainty, or angry as I watch events unfolding across our country. Is that the response I should have as a Christian?
So I turn off the news and listen to Christian music. I am reminded that the Bible tells us not to fear 365 times, once for each day of the year.
I remember one of my Mother’s favorite verses, “Be still and know that I am God,” and that Jesus taught that, “With God, nothing is impossible.”
For those of us who believe in a God who created this world, counts the hairs on our head, and knows the end from the beginning – we should not fear! He has this under control. Turn off the distracting voices and worship Him, beginning with one of my Dad’s favorite songs.
