From Rev Sue Ann Yarbrough
Blessings to you all. I do hope that you are taking time to pray and to also have some fun with close friends and family - even if it is on the phone. Staying connected helps us to maintain our sense of humor, which is so important in times of stress. Please take good care of yourselves, and let us know if there are needs that SpiritCare might be able to help with. You are in our prayers.
I return to Psalm 139 whenever I begin to feel lost or confused. It is, for me, a Psalm of knowing and being known. Yes, God knows us completely, and sometimes I need to be reminded of that. It is tempting to believe that if we are having difficulties, it must mean God has abandoned us. Yet, we know life will always have difficult moments. Rather than questioning if God has forgotten us, I suggest our questions should be,
This is true of our hearts. You know us deeply and completely. Therefore, we surrender all of ourselves to you. We know there is no holding back. We are yours, and we are grateful. Continue to help us live as fully and completely as we can. Thank you for watching over all of us. May all humans know your deep and wonderful love. May we learn to share that love with one another. Amen.
