Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you and you shall glorify me. – Psalm 50:15
We are living in troubled times. During this time of COVID-19 closures that began in my town on March 16, 2020, many cities are in lockdown throughout the world.
High schools are closed. Non-essential businesses are closed. Churches are closed.
Some essential businesses like the nonprofit where my husband works are not closed, but many of his employees are avoiding coming into the office and instead work directly with those they serve. The death toll in Italy has exceeded China’s. The morgues in northern Italy are full. It’s a scary time.
Jesus asks us to call upon Him when we are afraid and He will help us. I need to trust that He will always be there for us. He will never “leave you nor forsake you.” We need to meditate on His law and follow it. Amen.
