Why are we so obsessed with COVID? 99.6% of us won’t die from it… and we all know that FACT, yet here we are.
I think it is because COVID forced us, made us, convinced us that DEATH IS REAL.
So we as 2020 humans think WE CAN CONTROL THE STOPPAGE OF DEATH.
Shut down businesses, schools, wear masks, social distance.
SHUT DOWN DEATH.
Yet death exists all around us. Always has, always will.
We have to learn to
LOVE when we are here.
Truly ATTACK each day with enthusiasm.
We all waste hours, days, weeks, thinking we will live forever…there will be time down the road…but really all we have is this moment.
Quit wasting those moments.
AND HAVE FAITH
That GOD IS IN CONTROL AND NOT US.
WE CAN’T STOP DEATH.
I think our culture thinks we can somehow… and that is our stress point… thinking us humans are in fact in control.
I am not saying throw damn caution to the wind, and not wear a seatbelt (or a mask) or a life jacket…
but I think this is our anxiety, our confusion, our stress….
the world stopped and said, LOOK AT DEATH, LOOK HOW VULNERABLE US INCREDIBLE HUMANS ARE…
GOD’S PLAN. NOT OURS.
and WHEN (not if) we DO DIE, that we will be saved by our faith and GO TO HEAVEN TO LIVE FOREVER!
