Change is always the only constant we can depend on in this world.
We have been challenged in these last months in ways we never have in our lifetimes. As a Christian, I get great peace and comfort from the truths in God’s Word. There has been a great temptation to succumb to fear and panic. We hear conflicting reports. Who do we trust? Who can we believe? I can’t speak for you or anyone but myself. As for me, my trust is in God. I pray you have found that place of peace that passes understanding and comfort in your life.
Prayer, Bible reading and study, meditation, walking in nature, listening to praise music, journaling, and EFT have taken on even more importance in my life in this first half of 2020.
I received the following story in an email. It was said to be from a rabbi in Sydney, Australia, but I have no specifics as to who I may attribute these words to. I found so much peace and truth in these words that is so relevant to these chaotic, frightening, and unsettling times we find ourselves living through. What resonates with me is that even though it seems the whole world has been turned upside down, it is more our illusion of the security we thought we had that has changed.
I invite you to read it slowly and thoughtfully.
“It is not that we have lost our sense of certainty. We have lost our illusion of certainty. We never had it to begin with. This could be majorly unsettling or amazingly liberating. This tiny virus of 125 nanometers has sent the entire world into chaos. All of our plans are up in the air, markets are going crazy, entire countries shutting down, and we have no clue what the future holds. But that is always the case. We never know what the future holds. We only think we do, and keep getting surprised when things don’t pan out the way we expected. Now the mask is off. We have to admit our vulnerability. What will happen next? We don’t know. Our experts don’t know. Our leaders don’t know. Only God knows. And that is the point. Only God knows. Close your eyes and feel the uncertainty, make peace with it, let yourself be taken by it. Embrace your cluelessness. Because in all the confusion there is one thing you know for sure. You are in God’s hands. Keep calm. Panic and fear are also contagious. Take every precaution as advised by health authorities. Wash your hands well. And every time you do, remember whose hands you are in.”
I hope this brings you a new measure of peace in the midst of this chaos.
