The Caterpillar Story

Regardless of where you are at this present time, know that God has you covered. And His intention and plans for you have not changed. He still has everything under His control and His plan is that you prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers. His plan is that you shine. His plan is for you to stand out, doing the works that He planned for you to do before He sent you on the earth (Ephesians 2:10).

The Hourglass

But there is an audience unseen. From the heavens. At the birth of the baby, the hourglass is turned in heaven. The clock starts ticking. The sand is running through to the other side. The countdown has begun.

No one knows how long this baby has to live. At this point, no one really asks. It is assumed that this baby will live long, enjoy life, achieve success, grow and nurture a family and die at a good, ripe old age, leaving children, grandchildren and maybe, greatgrandchildren behind.

I’m Getting Happy!

COVID-19 is still there. Like an irritant that refuses to go away. And there is still only so much I can do, but I am getting something done. I feel such a relief! I thought my life was over. It’s funny how people around me have been going about their normal business. I just couldn’t get myself together. Mind you, I tried. I avoided listening to the news, I kept my conversations positive. And yet.

Perspectives

Imagine what they must have experienced, not knowing when next they were going to travel, and for how long they were traveling. Can you identify with them in these COVID-19 times? I can. I feel their frustrations. I feel their disappointment and distress. They had many questions. Maybe they expected the promised land to be just around the corner from Egypt. And the journey was taking forever! Their eyes were clouded over by what they were going through. So much that they failed to realise that their clothes were growing on them and their shoes did not fall apart.

What A Wonderful World!

Because God is still God, we know for sure, this is not the end. A new day will dawn where COVID-19 will be a thing of the past. It will happen soon. This is the time to prepare for that day. Keep hope alive. Set your sites on the future to come. Look beyond the now. Look beyond the darkness and see light. The promise of a better tomorrow. That is our hope. We have hope in God and we believe that this season will pass.

Hang In There!

In the midst of the lockdown, economic crises, sickness, and death, let us lift up our eyes to the only one who can save us, to the One True God. He hears us when we call. Pray for an end to this invasion. Pray for His light to come to dispel this darkness. Pray for His healing to flow through the nations. Pray that these days will not be unduly prolonged. We have to keep praying, even when we don’t feel like it.

Spring Ahoy!

In these times of fear, sickness, and death, there is a tendency to focus on the events around us. It is not good news anywhere in the world. Those who are well are fearful of catching a highly contagious COVID-19. Those who are sick are fearful of death. It is not farfetched, for all around us, we hear of sickness, of death on a daily basis and in huge numbers. Every news media carries the sad news. You can hardly avoid it.

What Then Shall We Say To These Things?

But once in a while, I fear. When I read a post on social media, or watch a video. Or listen to the news on TV. I feel the panic going through my mind. What do I do? One thing that has helped and is helping, is keeping my mind on God. I look up a worship program on YouTube and I just sing along, exalting the majesty of God. Or I look for a sermon on the power of God and just listen. When I lift up the ability of God, my fear disappears.
