If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything – it’s the extremely valuable lesson that NOTHING, NOTHING is secure in this physical world.
C-19 has brought us face-to-face with what we value most. It has shown us where we have put our trust. It may be teaching us what we have taken for granted in this life.
We are more quietly reflective about our purpose on this earth. We have a deeper awareness that there is so much in life that we cannot control. We are sobered to realize that our jobs, our lifestyles, our plans, even those people we love most dearly may be stripped away from us in a split second. We feel small, powerless, and weak.
C-19 has reminded us of the frailty of life and the futility of our earthly pursuits. As the world has pressed the pause button, our lives have trembled and been shaken to an abrupt halt. As the dust settles, we find ourselves looking into the sieve to see what precious little remains that is of true and lasting value.
We feel so vulnerable. Yet, when our soul is quieted, our hearts are better prepared to listen for God perhaps like never before. Could this be a silver lining?
We "listen" to God in so many ways, but one of the best ways to better understand the Creator of this universe, His ways and character are through the longest love letter ever recorded in the history of humankind: the Holy Bible.
I would like to invite you today to discover God's perspective about C-19. Bible study has taken many turns in my life. There's no single "right" way.
