doesn’t end when “safer-at-home” suggestions end. Even if the virus passes, the
effects will linger in countless ways. For some it will be financial ruin – or
at least significant stress. For others it will be repairing family
relationships – the stress of homeschooling and just “staying at home.” For
still others, the trauma of being alone and not experiencing human touch and
interpersonal, real-live contact will have unknown consequences.
We need God. We need God in more ways than we can imagine. Thankfully, God reveals Himself in multiple ways and most clearly through Jesus. The Bible is full of rich images, but we’re going to look at more than images over the coming weeks. There are a powerful two words, seemingly benign in English, “I AM.” But they carry much more weight than that. They speak to the ever-present nature of God as shepherd, bread of life, and so many others.
Our times are uncertain, but our God is not. He is with us. Now. And in exactly the way we need Him.
