It is an understatement to say that we are living in uncertain times, however it is during such times that we turn to scripture for answers. In Psalm 66:9 we read, “Our God has kept us among the living and has not allowed our feet to slip.”

It’s no secret that our neighborhood has been impacted severely as the Coronavirus spread – many among us lost jobs, businesses, co-workers, friends and loved ones. Our lives were turned upside down and continues to be threatened by this devastating disease.

But why, why do you think that God has kept you among the living? Why is it that your life is being spared when so many are dying around us?

As you ponder these questions, I pray that you would not let your guards down – wear a mask, or two if necessary, get vaccinated and please – please avoid contact with others outside your home. Let us stay apart now, so we can be together later.

May almighty God, our creator, redeemer and sustainer continue to keep you and your family amongst the living – Amen!
