Lent Musings 23
This is just some thoughts. We have the first confirmed case of covid 19 in our county. If we have one confirmed case, that number is going to multiply rapidly. I say that because if there is a confirmed case they could have had the virus for up to 20 days without being symptomatic. During that time they may have gone to church, ate at a restaurant, all without realizing that they were contagious.
I am afraid. I know the bible says “Do not fear” a kajillion times. And I wish I was better at obeying that particular biblical mandate. But because of Jesus, I know that my inability is where His grace meets me.
I have faith that God can heal the sick. I also have faith in Him even if He doesn’t. I know that I would like things to go my way, but I don’t have the whole picture, just a few threads right in front of my face. Personally, I’m not fond of suffering. I am not fond of pain. But I know that if you are alive, there will be suffering.
That being said, I don’t believe in suffering needlessly so, lets be careful. I am sharing a link to a video from TedTalks by Global Health expert Alanna Shaikh which does not dramatize or politicize but does explain how this virus works and why it is different than other’s we have seen in a way that even I could understand. https://www.ted.com/…/alanna_shaikh_coronavirus_is_our_futu…
Be safe precious people.
