My trust is fully in him. I have been hurt in the last few months when people post things or comment things about me living in fear. Not usually me specifically, but people who are currently doing the same as me.
I mean, my heart genuinely aches when someone says that if we believe in the virus then we must not believe in the Lord enough. Not having enough faith in God and being a fairweather Christian.
I can not for the life of me understand why my faith has to come into question because I am choosing to follow guidelines to keep people safe?
I do not live in fear, I live in faith. I also am aware enough to know that God is encouraging me to be a part of the solution, not contribute furthermore to the problem.
My belief is that I have a God who is by my side all the time and who loves me. Therefore, I do not fear death. I do not fear living a happy, fulfilled life. Yet, there is also disease and illness in this world and God calls me to make changes to help the greater good.
My belief in God and my belief in this virus are not mutually exclusive. I do not believe that they have to be. I will continue listening and do what I can do to help during this time, as God has called me to do.
