Greetings in the name of our
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
To God be all the Glory as May, the fifth month of the year of our Lord, is upon us as depending on where you live, the cold days of winter are almost behind us and spring as sprung for us to enjoy the sunshine and put that winter gear away. Despite an abundance of rain as trees are blooming, we still thank God who r-e-i-g-n-s that April showers
bring May flowers.
While God is watering His beautiful creations in the midst of this coronavirus pandemic, I still wonder if He is shedding an over abundance of tears that if our country would realize that if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land - 2 Chronicles 7:14.
So many days and nights, I just say Lord help us as I pray without ceasing that those who need to do so act accordingly regarding this scripture so that God can heal our land and that they also take heed to the warnings to social distance, shelther in place and wear a mask because this pandemic is not over until God says it's over.
I often think about the biblical story of Noah's ark and how they were instructed to stay in the ark until God sent a sign. My God my God, they didn't leave the ark during that 40 day period when it rained for 40 days and 40 nights; they were obedient and stayed in the ark until it was time to safely come out. I see these protests and crowds still gathering despite all of those that have lost their lives to this coronavirus and I pray that they know that God will make a way out of no way. In the midst of the unemployment, God will make a way out of no way if we just trust Him through it all. For example, I see that creditors are willing to have their customers skip monthly payments during such a time as this.
This month we also celebrate Mother's Day, as her children rise up and called her blessed. While for most of us it is a time of celebration, there are those like myself, whose beloved mother has gone home to be with the Lord, and this can be a difficult time as cherished memories roll down our cheeks as tears. I sincerely pray that the footprints in the sand, which have carried me for the past 25 years without my mom, do the same for you.
Wishing all mothers a Happy Mother's Day and may God continue to bless you and keep you in His everlasting care as we also honor and thank those soldiers for their service on Memorial Day.
With a shepherds heart,
