Each Friday I have been posting about an old hymn or gospel song of the church.
This week as the news have been so full of the coronavirus and all the disturbing news associated with that, I thought of an old gospel song I have not heard in years.
There is so much misinformation out there, so much panic. In the midst of the questions of what will the next few weeks/months bring, this song is a comfort to me.
At 72 with diabetes and a minor heart issue I’m told I am in the group that is most susceptible to a fatal outcome if I should get the virus.
I am doing what I can to be wise and avoid crowds. Certainly I don’t want to get the virus.
I confess I worry about friends who have contacted the virus, about the young couples whose income is gone, about the elderly in nursing homes who cannot have family visitors now. I pray for the pressures of families with small children who are shut in 24/7.
But when fear begins to arise I remember this song. Whatever the future holds, I know the one who created all eternity.
Hope you also find it comforting.
