God is There

My Brothers and Sisters,

Never could we have imagined our world as it is at this very moment.  We miss the hugs of humanity and feel a sense of hopelessness encroaching our homes. We’ve been made aware that as senior citizens, we’re the most vulnerable to the Corona Virus, therefore we’ve been directed to stay inside our home.

“But Lord”, we pray, “how can we be vessels of your love if we can’t witness hope to your people.

But the Lord tells us to take this time to pray and listen.  He invites us to intercede for those who also feel hopeless and alone during this unprecedented time of social distancing.

Pam and I can’t help but feel the need to get out there and minister to those of you affected by this virus.  But here’s a better option, let God minister to you.  Instead of dwelling on fear and worry, put your mind on the Lord.  When we spend time on our knees, we are reminded that God is with us.

That’s the message of a song I wrote called Still Be Still.  I hope it’ll bring encouragement and comfort to you right now.

Still be still, still be still
Silently, still be still

Bow your head, no words said
Silently, still be still

Take the time and listen
Clear your mind, just listen
You will find if you listen
God is there, God is there, God is there

Deep within lives a friend
Silently, still be still
