Last Sunday we prayed Psalm 121: “The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time on and forevermore.” (Vs 7-8)
Even with the Pandemic, I still urge us all not to panic.
Remember, Jesus took Jarius’ daughter “by the hand and said to her, “Talitha cum,” which means, “Little girl, get up!” And immediately the girl got up and began to walk about (she was twelve years of age). At this they were overcome with amazement. He strictly ordered them that no one should know this, and told them to give her something to eat.” (Mark 5: 41-43)
We will be ok. Tom+
