Our government this week warned we may be living with physical distancing and face masks for another two years. The recent surge of Covid infections in countries who thought they had “flattened the curve” has precipitated a major rethink. We are on a precipice.
It’s comforting to remember that “this is our Father’s world”. He is all-knowing, all-present, and all-powerful. Nothing surprises him. He has factored Covid into his sovereign design. We will be delivered of it in his time.
This doesn’t mitigate the suffering but it does give hope. We continue to pray “thy will be done” even as we implore him to deliver us from the evil of the virus. In the meantime Covid forces a re-evaluation of values even as it catalyzes a renewal of spirit.
There is light at the end of the tunnel.
