“God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains.” C. S. Lewis

  • God’s with you. “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed,” Psalm 34:18
  • God listens and responds. “I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears.” Psalm 34:4
  • Acting like suffering isn’t happening does not represent Jesus. Lamenting pain, being honest about what we want to see change does represent Jesus. John 11:33-35

Sure seems like it’s a good idea to pray for and say Thank You to every first responder, medical professional, caregiver, and the brave people cleaning these facilities.

Much love to you all. May God give you grace and peace today.

– Pastor Ben
