Trust God is the answer when world is in bad shape

I am so glad for all the things that were suggested in The News.

It seems like this is a good time for families to go for a walk together outside and get fresh air and also do special things together at home.

Children are going through a hard time also, and we need to help them by listening to them. My niece’s 4-year-old granddaughter in Phoenix, who is adopted, poured her little heart out to her dad and mom about how everything is shut down everywhere, even her favorite restaurant, McDonald’s. Her dad said they can go through the drive-through, but she said she can’t play inside on the playground.

She went on and on, sometimes crying. She was so sweet, but it was a sad thing for her, and she put so much emotion in her voice and actions.

That is what we need to do, pour out our hearts to our heavenly Father. Ask him to help you know what to do. I can see how people would be fearful with no job and money to buy the things they need.

What is the answer?

Trust God seems like the right answer, and it is. The reason we need to trust God is because he is our only hope at such a hard time in our live. A good chapter in the Bible helps us to have hope. Read Psalm 91.

When this virus started, it made me think of the fact that we were all born with a virus called sin. There is a sure cure for that; it is the blood of Jesus that he shed for our sin. We need to believe that it is and ask Jesus to forgive our sins and save us.

Let us remember Jesus’ words about the two great commandments. Love the Lord with all your heart, soul and strength and your neighbor as yourself.

This is a really good time to show our neighbors and businesses how much we appreciate them.

We can all our neighbors and whoever and ask them what we can do for them, like bringing them food, etcetera.

Let’s wake up and stay awake because I believe the Lord is coming back soon, the way this world is in bad shape in many ways, morally especially.
