As we continue this journey through this pandemic, today marks approximately 60 days of shelter in place for our family. During this time, we have learned as a family that it is important to pause, to reflect, to have faith and to keep moving forward.
I challenge you to stop and think, during this past month what has changed or what has not changed for your family?
When I reflect on what has changed for our family, once upon a time, we had a routine, every day was the same, rise and shine – what is on the agenda for today? It could had been a simple work and school day followed by extracurriculars or it could had been a complex day of rushing around especially during a weekend to fit everything in to accomplish our plans.
Today, we have a new routine. We are fortunate that my husband and I still work, and that our children still attend school, even if it is home school. It is a routine that is simple, back to the basics of a family unit without plans. Hence, surviving this heartbreaking pandemic, we need to count our blessings.
Then, I reflect on what has not changed for our family. A constant in our lives is our family’s unshakable faith. It is normal to wonder, “Will God answer my prayers?”; “Will God provide for me?”; and “Does God see all the pain?”
Through faith, the answer to all of these questions is a resounding yes! God is never shaken, so your faith should be unshakable.
Lord, as we continue on this journey, hear our prayer. “My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress,
I will never be shaken” (Psalm 62:1-2).
