In light of the COVID 19 pandemic, I want to share this short poem with you in order to offer hope in these tedious times.
By Sarah Fox
What if this pandemic is a sign?
What if this season is all by God’s design?
What if God has a word for all of us?
What if there’s peace amidst the fuss?
What if we decide to band together?
What if we stay united until things get better?
What will we do when God speaks to us?
Will we ignore His Word or strengthen our trust?
Will we take advantage of hope during this time or will we self-isolate and fall into despair?
God is speaking,
God is planning,
God is waiting,
God is reaching,
God is teaching,
God is preaching,
God is redeeming.
We need to lift our eyes,
We need to turn from our wickedness and lies,
We need to love one another like never before,
We need to humble ourselves and turn to the Lord.
This pandemic is not the end,
God wants us to turn to Him,
He wants our hearts to mend.
What if this season is a great awakening?
What if we recognize God’s mighty hand?
The world is changing,
We need not live in fear,
Jesus is still calling,
Jesus is drawing us near.
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and heal their land.
– 2 Chronicles 7:14
