COVID-19 has made me reconnect with my faith in a special way. I’ve always been a spontaneous person, but not knowing what comes next has been nerve-racking. Day by day, I’m learning to live in the present moment rather than dwelling on what used to be or stressing about what will be.

We do not usually learn that Christ is all we need until we reach that place where He is all we have!

I pray these scriptures feed your soul during this time of uncertainty.
