Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; Yes, our God is merciful. The Lord preserves the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me. Return to your rest, O my soul, for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you. – Psalm 116:5-7
I know what is like to be brought low. When I tested positive for COVID-19 on September 1st, I was scared. I didn’t imagine that I would be sick months later. I don’t have the energy I used to have. I need to rest more than I did before. After I was released from quarantine 28 days later, I think many people assumed I was fully recovered. Although many of my symptoms significantly improved, and I was no longer contagious, I had fatigue and nausea two months later. Some people say this pandemic is a hoax, but it is not. It is real, and we are all in it together. Immunity has come at a price.
Christ paid a price for our sins. The Lord knows we need to rest. He knows we are living at a difficult time, but He cares for us, and He will always be there to save us.
