On my drive home from town to stock up on our depleted supply of food and household products, I couldn’t help but notice how striking the green of the fresh, spring grass was and how vivid the colors of the flowers in the yards and meadows.

Amid all the talk of COVID-19 and the impact it has had on our world, as well as our individual lives, it was a reminder that life still goes on, and that no matter how out of control our world may get, the Lord is still in control.

So, I wanted to share some timeless truths in Scripture that have encouraged me during this challenging time.

God will never leave us! “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” ~ Hebrews 13:5

God is faithful and has things under control!  “As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.” ~ Genesis 8:22

Jesus is bigger than our problems!  Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” ~ John 16:33

Jesus gave us a purpose and a promise!  Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” ~ Matthew 28:20

For those who put their hope in Jesus, someplace better is coming! Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” 

I hope you’ve been encouraged by these thoughts and words. If you have a particular verse that has brought you encouragement, I’d love to hear it!
