So many emotions are present right now dear Lord. Sadness, fear, longing, loss, uncertainty — this world aches from the weight of this pandemic on our lives. It is of a size and scope that is difficult to comprehend. It is unfathomable to think every corner of the globe has been touched by this invisible enemy. Yet you dear God are so much bigger than all of this. You are steadfast, our fortress in times of trouble. Your infinite love and grace are unfathomable. Your peace surpasses all understanding. You weep with us, comfort us, give us hope. In the midst of our trials, you counsel us with your word. Soothe us with the balm of your Spirit.

“I love You, O LORD, my strength.” The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. – Psalm 18:1-2 (NASB)
