“The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil; your rod and your staff they comfort me.”
No doubt this year will provide a very different atmosphere for our families. As we are quickly approaching Easter Sunday we may be filled with sadness at the thought of not being able to gather around the table as usual. This year the Coronavirus has changed everything. Some are calling it “The Invisible Enemy”. On this Silent Wednesday of Holy Week the world is wailing, overwhelmed with fear. We are concerned about our health, livelihood, our children’s future. This “Invisible Enemy“ is anything but silent.
“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.”
We may not be preparing quite the same this year, but we should remember that while some things have changed, the reason for the celebration remains. The table set before us is mercy, peace, it’s hope and salvation!
“Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. “
Find rest in His presence today. – Carly
