I looked at myself in the mirror, another day and another morning where I woke up more anxious than the last. It seems I cannot leave my house, pick up my phone or interact with anyone without COVID being the topic of conversation. Even beyond that with all that is happening in the world and the heaviness weighing on the hearts of every person who breathes.
There is no escaping a broken world.
I think for the first time in a long time, we are back to the place where our eyes are opened to the fact that we are sinners in a sinful and broken world. Generations before us who endured horrible wars, tragedies, and pandemics already know what we are learning for ourselves.
Our world is not immune to the darkness. None of this pain is new.
However, our generation and our children’s generation have not experienced anything like this. A pandemic is foreign ground.
Almost two years after the pandemic started, there is a new epidemic creeping to the surface. It was silent at first but has grown louder as time has gone on, and frustration with COVID is at an all-time high.
