Disconnected from God?

I feel as if God is far away; cold and unfeeling. Is he ignoring me? Is he too busy with other things? Does he still care? I feel so alone. It would really help to know thatGod hasn’t abandoned me in my time of need. From beginning to end, the Bible is the story ofGod’s […]

Dare to Hope!

As this crisis continues, it sometimes feels hopeless and impossible to go on. The things I used to look forward to are gone, and I don’t know what to hope for in the future. I keep thinking of that old saying: Life is hard and then you die. But I have a different take on […]

Contentment.

I have found myself in so many different situations recently. My mind replays each moment. I hear the sounds, see the images, remember the faces. It’s not that I want to forget everything that has happened; I want to find peace from the flood of thoughts and have a new perspective on it all. When […]

Anger.

Am I angry? What do you think? We can’t even meet our most basic needs, and I can’t get help anywhere. It’s like no one even cares. Yes, I’m angry—very angry about everything! It’s frustrating when we experience a major loss of control in our lives as we are experiencing with the COVID-19 pandemic. When […]

Alone in Grief

My heart aches! People are losing their jobs and maybe their homes. Students are missing out on future opportunities. Some business owners have lost their income and their life savings. And the loss of life is terrible. Even worse, we can’t be there for one another. I’m so discouraged I sometimes don’t know how to […]

Not the Same Person

I didn’t expect things to be so different. It’s a challenge to put my life back together in the “new normal” without the resources and opportunities we used to have. We’re thinking about what’s important and making decisions about things we hadn’t thought about before. I realize I’ve changed. I don’t look at things quite […]

Security in Chaos

Every day brings new changes in life. Nothing—not even going out to buy bread or milk—is as simple as it used to be. Everything is in chaos. I’m becoming afraid of what tomorrow might bring. What will happen if I can’t get food or medicine? Will life ever return to normal? Wherever you live in […]

Help Me!

I’m stunned. I had heard that COVID-19 could be bad, but I never imagined a global pandemic would be like this for me, my family, and my community. It’s a lot worse than I expected.  Even if we do everything right, stay at home, and keep our distance, I can’t be certain that the people […]

No More!

I’ve had it! I can’t concentrate on anything. It’s so hard to remember what people are trying to tell me. I’m utterly exhausted, but I can’t sleep. I feel so nauseous I can’t eat. I’m irritated with everyone and impatient about everything. I just want it all to go away! Dealing with a disaster or […]

Finding Joy in Life

Why did I live when others died? The pandemic is so random. No one could predict who would get sickand who wouldn’t. No one expected vulnerable people to survivewhile young, healthy people died. Life seems so fragile now. We may want it to be different, but life isfragile. It doesn’t come with guaranteesof happiness or […]
