Max Lucado on the "Pandemic"

"Lord," I ask, "what are you doing by permitting this pandemic?" ....

One morning I prayed, and I heard the word "calling."
I understood that to mean that God is calling people
back to himself. Calling us to walk more closely with him.
Calling to those who don't know him, getting their attention.
We are being reminded of how frail we are.

I turn to the story of Jesus walking on the water.
The whole idea of it. Coming to his disciples in the middle
of the storm. He could have kept that storm from ever
coming, but he let it. He let the storm come, then showed up.
Jesus will show up in the midst of this storm.
