We are all asking why, right? Why is this happening, how did it happen, how long will this go on? There are so many conspiracy theories but today I am not going to discuss politics. I am so sick of politics. Today I am going to discuss the “silver lining”. My mom, Patsy Ruth Harris, whom I miss so terribly much, once told me “Baby girl, there is a silver lining in every cloud, you just have to find it.” So for days, even weeks, I have been looking for this silver lining. And I have found so much.

I am a very spiritual person and believe God is always there protecting me. I know there is a reason for everything and have no issue putting all my trust in Him. So after much soul searching, this is what my theory is….

Has God been trying to get our attention? Wildfires in Australia and the USA, the locust plague, earthquakes, volcano ruptures, tornadoes, increased crime rate, and the drug crisis. These are just to name a few. Now we have COVID-19. I am 47 (I think) and have never seen anything like this. The whole world is on lock down and people are dying alone. Well HE has my attention. I am not claiming God did this. We all have free will. But he is trying to get our attention.

“If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place” (2 Chron. 7:13-15).

The coronavirus is deadly for sure, but so is the wicked ways of the world. Is this a wake up call? Time to take inner stock in ourselves? We are all sinners.

So is there a spiritual message behind this pandemic? What silver lining have you found? I am saying yes, YES, YES, YES! He is sending us a message. And my silver lining is I have become closer to God and my faith. I trust that a vaccine will be developed. And I am so grateful to all of those that are on the front line working and putting them and their families at risk. And I trust God.

Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
