Even af­ter many weeks of liv­ing through the Covid 19 Pan­demic we feel a deep sense of pre­car­i­ous­ness in the face of it. We re­alise how vul­ner­a­ble we are to out­breaks of in­fec­tious dis­eases.

We wait pa­tiently for hope to spring from our life of ‘so­cial dis­tanc­ing’ and ‘self-iso­la­tion’. This truth is even amidst strug­gles and pain God in­vites us to see his light and know his peace.

God pro­vides us help through NHS and other pro­fes­sion­als. It is im­por­tant that we seek ap­pro­pri­ate help. Still it can­not be de­nied that the pa­tients hav­ing faith in God have im­mensely ben­e­fited from it. In fact, both - med­i­cal help and prayer should go hand in hand.

Learn­ing to trust God on the most dif­fi­cult days of our lives is not easy. But know­ing that God has a plan and pur­pose for you helps im­mensely.

God in Christ has not promised a pain­less, strug­gle­free life. Nev­er­the­less, when we put our trust in God, He even uses the strug­gles we go through to draw us closer to him­self.
