My little preschooler dancing and prancing as always, seem to understand about pandemic. I’m eager to learn from him things that so often nudge his thinking brain. He is so eloquent about issues around him and how he feels about it. That makes me tick.
Me: Today, I’m going to read this book “Spot’s Bedtime Storybook”.
Him: Skip Ad ! Haha
The reason for writing today is his thoughtful prayers in response to pandemic. Every morning, he prays that he wants his friends happy and well. He prays that his preschoolers come to play with him, have fun and enjoy every moment at preschool. We are grateful to God for His tender mercies that are new every morning, keeping everyone safe and healthy without fear of harm and danger. His compassion never fail. Our God is our loving heavenly father. All of his friends are safe; taken care and loved by God”.
22. Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
23. They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22, 23)

This is one of many astonishing changes that happened some days ago in this quiet dull season. Due to pandemic, businesses were slowing down. Business expenditure had to be slashed. Losing jobs shocked many in the community. At this point of time, my husband’s job didn’t seem steady. His project was put on hold and was given 4 weeks period of notice. We never thought this problem would arise.
We prayed to God earnestly for an opening that would bless our family. God listened to our prayers. After praying, we were not afraid. We felt a sense of calm. Quietness filled our soul after we gave our burden and worries that mattered to us to Almighty God in prayer. After 2 weeks, someone called him for a job proposal. With so many companies laying off professionals and workers, my husband got the job at the right time. They were impressed and we found favor in the sight of God and men. God helped us right on time. I thank God for he did not leave us hungry or broken-hearted. Help came in at the right time. We received the comfort from God, the sure salvation from Lord Almighty.
“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” Hebrews 13:6
We daily thank Lord Jesus Christ for the price He paid at the cross for us.
