As we shelter ourselves in our homes trying to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus, are we also trusting God? It is good to be reminded that God cares for us and encourages us to “cast our cares upon Him”.
Psalm 68:19 reminds us that God daily bears our burdens. I don’t know about you – but I could stand to be reminded of that daily. Every day, with its daily dose of news and government urgings to keep vigilant – we can feel discouraged and – for those who rely on outings and visits – alone. Each day let us remind ourselves and others – that each day God -who cares for us – will help us, stand with us, be present with us, in bearing our burdens.
A Prayer: Lord, thank-you for being with us. Thank-you for caring about the fears and isolation we feel. Remind us of your love daily and help us to rest secure in your eternal love. Lift our hearts and help us to praise You. We are grateful for each person who demonstrates kindness and caring to us. Help us to see your kindness and care for us and be as thankful to You. Lord watch over us. Lord protect us. Lord help us to love one another.
