Sundown in a Dry and Thirsty Land

Sunset over Arches National Park.

In the desert of coronavirus:

In the desert,
the heat shrivels up life.

In the desert,
only doubts form in the salty flats.

In the desert,
your trust in God begins to wilt.

In the desert,
love dries up and cracks.

In the desert,
you fight the thoughts of dying.

In this pandemic remember:

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10

Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.
As they pass through the Valley of Baca,
they make it a place of springs; Psalm 84:5-6

Take heart with God’s help, we can make this calamity place of springs.
