peace in pandemic
COVID-19 has flipped the world upside down in a matter of weeks. This is an unprecedented time. Amidst all the chaos, let us continue to rest in the peace we have in Abba. The unknown doesn’t have to be scary because He is in the unknown. In chapter four of the gospel of Mark, Jesus declares peace over troubled waters:
“And a great windstorm arose, and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was already filling. But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion. And they woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?” And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?” (Mark 4:37-41, ESV).
