These are difficult times for all of us. Some are in the frontline caring for Covid-19 patients. Some have family, friends or individuals who are in the frontline or suffering with this virus. As I write this blog, I am also listening to Adventist Healthcare Board members give details as to how diligently they are working to address this crisis in our hospitals. We salute all healthcare workers from doctors to environmental service workers who have to work long hours to care for the struggling ones. These are difficult times! There are a number of our loved ones who have lost their jobs and as the new month has begun, they will be struggling to make their payments. Some of us are housebound, unable to go anywhere, and the staff are studying various ways that we can continue ministering. Please keep in touch via our Web Page and Zoom as we continue to do ministry. As we struggle to face an uncertain future, may we, by the grace of God, get off the driver’s seat and let Him take control of the steering. He may take us through difficult and dangerous paths and rocky places. We may get anxious, worried and even scared that He may wreck the car but He knows the way through the wilderness of life. All we have to do is just trust in Him and hang in there as He speeds and takes sharp turns. Be confident that He is at the steering wheel and He will take us safely through life’s journey. The psalmist says: Know ye that the Lord He is God: it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves, we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.” Someone put it this way: “The greatest act of faith is when man decides he is not God.”
The Chairman of Adventist Healthcare, Dr. Dave Weigley concluded the board meeting with two statements that I want to share with you.
“Be smart today so that you will be safe tomorrow.”
“Be confident today as there is a bright future.”
