I know some never include God in their lives, as they either are non-believers or they blame him for our hard times. This COVID-19 could be one of those times, especially when we’ve not seen anything like this in most (any) of our lifetimes.
I was thinking about people quarantined, those that are ill and just about everyone, all of us. I haven’t heard much about people speaking of prayer or God. Maybe you’d say “that’s because I don’t discuss it, I just do it.” Or “I’ve been too busy trying to take care of my family”. Or “I can’t pray to God, I blame Him”. I am sure there is some of that.
I’ve thought about this for a couple of days now, it just seems to me many of us haven’t included God in on what we are going through, a time we may need Him the most. I may be thinking that way because I know a lot of the church masses/services aren’t being held…..due to congregation bans. Even that word seems to have a different meaning now. No, I don’t expect everyone to go on YouTube and broadcast your prayer time. I could be wrong about all this, it just seems this way to me and it’s been on my mind.
I believe there are materials, sources and resources on this planet that are solutions to problems like disease, literally everything we face. They are here for a reason, and they were planted by God for us to discover, use and consume. It wasn’t by accident, Amen to that!
