Pandemic life keeps getting harder. What should be open? Do we send kids to school? Is this nagging cough allergies or Coronavirus? How long is this going to go on?
It’s hard enough it the daytime with incessant news and social media panic posting, but at least during the day there are distractions. It’s at night when anxiety rears it’s ugly head. Sleep evades us and fear of the unknown begins to dominate our thoughts. I see people struggling with anxious thoughts all over my social media fees, and there are a number of studies showing that depression is on the rise. And it seems to be the night hours that are the worst.
The Lord is there. In the dark, before the night watches and in the nautical dawn, He is near.
Our hearts can wholly call out to Him in the night, knowing that He hears us. We can listen to Him without the distractions of living and we can meditate on His promises. Our hope for the future is in His just and faithful words. Find rest in His eternal sovereignty. His promises, protection, and provisions are founded forever.
