What is happening??? All I want to do is vacuum people! So……we are in quarantine. Yep! The nasty covid hit our family. So now everyone is doing school remote and my hubby is still working from home. Needless to say, I have to be quiet. Dear Lord Jesus in heaven, please bring back the normalcy of life where no one between the hours of 8am and 2pm are present. Don’t get me wrong, love love my family, but I’m pretty sure you are all feeling the depth of my agony right now.
So how, what, where, and in what way are we supposed to trust God in all of this when the world is going to hell in a hand basket? Well…..speaking of hell, there’s an enemy that wants us to question. He wants us to look around and be like, God, where are you and why aren’t you fixing this. Pretty sure we can all go back to many times in life where we’ve questioned what the heck He is doing. Whether a loss of a loved one, being abused, battling depression, loss of a job, short of money, and the list goes on. I’m not gonna lie, I’ve spent some weeks just trying to get out of the funk. I definitely don’t have all the answers but I do know this. I can feel myself loving differently. I can feel a change in the way I approach people. I’m choosing to find good even though I’m losing my marbles being stuck in the house. I mean, a woman can only clean so much ha. I was processing this and realized I’ve been here before. Like I said, we all have. It’s a choice to sit in the defeat or not. It was a choice for me to either allow the abuse to control me or to move forward in healing. We need to reach back to the times we have seen His faithfulness. We need to remember that He is more powerful than a pandemic. Matthew 19:26, “But Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Friends, we are gonna make it through this. I challenge you to find those few things that allow you to keep going. Whether it’s as simple as the sun shining bright, or as beautiful as a phone call with a friend or loved one. Allow yourself to feel worn down and frustrated because it’s real but then tell yourself that there is someone more powerful that’s got this and rest in that.
“Not all storms come to disrupt your life, some come to clear your path.”
