With the Coronavirus making headlines constantly, hardships in our lives, and the many other negative social media and news articles inundating us with negativity, it is easy to lose sight of our Lord . We should remember, to glorify God in not only the good, but also the bad. For even through the bad, God is present, in control, and molding the story of our lives. We do not need to fear anything when we allow God to be in control of our lives. He will provide for our needs and protect us.
'Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character, and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.' Romans 5:1-5
