Positive in a Time of COVID

You may have noticed it has been quiet on the Journey lately.

I have been tested for COVID and the results are positive.

I have all kinds of feels about it; but very few coherent thoughts. During the night, I came up with recalling this truth from Psalm 23:2:



Most of the time, when things like this happen, I blame it on the enemy and bind him in prayer and think positively that tomorrow is going to be brighter.

I've had a host of people praying; yet the test turned out positive. It occurs to me God has placed me in a situation where I literally have to lie down. There is no strength for anything else.

The rest of the verse tells me He leads beside still waters. I must be still.

And wait.

But there's something else that's positive - my belief that He is with me; and goodness and mercy are pursuing me.

I read the end of the Psalm - and also the back of the book!

I'm so sorry you tested positive, Jerralea! Praying for you right now for a full recovery. It has been circling around many in my community again as well. My sister is still recovering, and now another niece and her family have it. Trusting the Lord gives you sweet rest as you wait this out and wait on God for deliverance from it.

I'm sorry for your positive results, Jerralea. Thank you for your positive words and example of trust in God. Working in hospice and palliative medicine, I'm afraid this hits home for me every day. Praying for a full recovery with no lasting side effects. May God's presence be even more real to you today.
