Dear friends, what a year this has been! One of my weaknesses is the tenancy to be anxious, and anxious I’ve been over the past months. This is no way to live. I know that I should trust in the Lord to be my refuge and strength. He has promised to be our help during times of trouble.
There is nothing new under the sun. There have been pandemics before. There has been political unrest before. But all of this feels so new, since for most of my life we’ve lived in relative peace.
I find myself thinking, “What a time to be living in!” But really, we are living through history repeating itself. I believe the citizens of the USA have become complacent, and have let sin slip into our lives. Yes, this has happened with big things like the legalism of abortion and acceptance of gender confusion, but also in “little” things. In America, we often make idols of entertainment, education, and sports. I too am guilty.
We must recognize these idols for what they are and turn from them. We must repent and turn to Him. This is the only way for things to get better.
We are also seeing an eroding of our privacy rights and censorship online. I have opened a MeWe account, and I’d love for you to connect with me there.

We must repent and pray. The Lord is so good, and holds the world in His hands. If we belong to Him, we have nothing to fear.
This is off topic, but before I go, I would love to ask for your prayers. I am battling an infection, and am so far using natural means to heal. I truly appreciate it.
I hope your weekend is lovely, and full of peace.
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John 14:27 NKJV

Thank you for this post. I think it’s very well written. I know I get afraid and then have to remind myself that God has control and even though I don’t know His plan, I know He loves me and I will be fine, no matter what.
You’re welcome, Darlene! I have to remind myself of this, too.
