There is a Great Love carrying us through rough waters.

Psalm 7:2

Lord my God, in you I take refuge; rescue me; save me from all who pursue me.

Many people can relate to the words of today’s psalm.

It feels as though we are under siege from the Coronavirus.

As we find ourselves cooped up in our homes…we can become somewhat paranoid.

Rescue me, O God!

Fear is what happens when we allow our minds to start manufacturing stories.

Usually the stories are about bad things happening.

They are all fiction.

God is still God and is very much so with us.

Allow Jesus’ words that he spoke to the fearful apostles as he walked on water to calm you: “Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid” (Matthew 14:27).

St. Paul said this: “We know that all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).

When we trust in a Higher Power, a God who is love (1 John 4:8), we know all obstacles can be turned into opportunities.

Ponder this quote from Stephen Levine’s book, “Who Dies?”:

“If we can say that grace is a sense of connectedness, that it is the experience of our underlying nature, then we may see how what is often called tragedy holds the seeds of grace.”

We are in the midst of these “seeds of grace.”

Have faith and allow the seeds to be nurtured and to sprout.
