This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength” (Isaiah 30:15a NIV). Have you considered the COVID-19 pandemic a wakeup call? It has reminded me to repent, to rest, to find quietness, and to remember to trust in God.
I confess that I struggle with wanting to control things in my life. On more than one occasion, I have been reminded to “let go and let God.” This pandemic may just be a gift as God has helped me to refocus, to rest, to remember my priorities, and to serve Him and others! My days have been restructured and I have found more time for both spiritual and physical rest.
