    Easter has come, and gone…

    What now, Lord? What have I to anticipate—with all that’s going on around me? The confusion, the heartache, the overwhelming stress of the unknown…trying to cope, but not doing all that well with it …

    What about today, and tomorrow? What purpose do I have—when isolated from others and trying to simply stay healthy and well. How can I be of use to anyone, really, when I can’t see anyone, touch anyone, really connect with anyone—all because of deep fear and profound anxiety?

    I pray… but sometimes I don’t know what to say…what to pray for—other than for all this to go away, very soon…

    I read Your Word… but often I can’t seem to relate to what You’re saying to me, in a way that’s practical and relevant.

    What do You have in mind with all of this, Lord? I sometimes think I’m not doing what you would have me do; but I can’t seem to grasp what it is You want from me.

    And so, I simply put my complete trust in You. For right now; and for all the days, weeks, even months that are ahead of me. My faith is definitely being put to the test. Yet You have never let me down in the past. I know, beyond doubt, You are with me right now—yes even in my loneliness and isolation.

    I am completely open to hearing from You—at any moment, at any hour. Speak, Lord, for Your servant is waiting and willing to do what You require of me. Then, give me the strength and courage to follow through with whatever it is—for the benefit of Your Kingdom. I am Yours. You are mine. And that’s all that really matters… in these days after Easter. It’s the least I can do for You—for the One who did, and is still doing, everything for me!
