The New Normal — COVID 19

I’m currently standing in line looking at the 2010 national champions basketball roster poster at Talladega a college waiting to be tested for COVID 19. Welcome to the Fall semester of 2020.

I’m going in knowing that, “The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.” Psalm 28:7.

Who are we without God? Nothing, I say. In these times of trials and tribulations, being near Him is what can comfort us to do His will. Trust Him, love Him! Exalt Him! Yesterday, today, tomorrow and forever.

I’m near the door. I’m the fourth in line. Time is passing… I patiently stand. It’s the protocol, I follow. It’s the new normal! It’s okay. It ain’t the end of the world as many claim it to be.

Can you imagine what Jonah experienced in the whale’s belly? Or the trials that Job experienced in his lifetime? How about Daniel being thrown in the lion’s den? It’s just a different protocol but it ain’t deadly.

I’m in! sat down, got up and got tested. The results will be available in 10 minutes. I trust the Lord for His will. I think three minutes has passed. I must admit that my drive to move my unit forward is much stronger than this short wait for the results.

It’s negative! God is good

“A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.” Psalm 91:7.

The new normal — COVID 19.
