You’re Going to Be Okay

I’m ready for this whole stay-at-home thing to be over. I want to go places. I want to be able to talk about the COVID-19 pandemic in the past tense.

I don’t want to rush back into normal and have this virus flare up again and cause more deaths. At the same time, I don’t want small businesses to have to close their doors because of the shelter-in-place.

If you let it, thinking about all the ramifications of coronavirus can be overwhelming and anxiety-inducing. It can consume all your waking thoughts if you let it.

But I choose daily to trust in God and not in what I comprehend or feel. I cling to His promises that are eternal in the face of temporary hardships.

I cling to the words of the Psalmist when he said:

“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust” (Psalm 91:1-2, NIV).
