The Lord also keeps safe those who suffer. He is a safe place in times of trouble. Those who know Your name will put their trust in You. For You, O Lord, have never left alone those who look for You. Psalm 9:9-10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
There is always good that goes with bad.
Look at the virus that is snaking around the world right now. Yes it is causing a lot of sickness and death. But, it is also contributing to a lot of good.
Look at how many families are spending time together like they did forty years ago.
Look at how folks are looking out for each other in their communities.
Look at how folks are coming together in creative ways in their church to keep together.
Look at how many folks are having time to read their Bibles, for some, maybe the first time in their life.
Look at how many folks are taking walks on nature trails which is good for their mental, physical and spiritual health.
And, most important of all is look at how many folks are spending quality time with Jehovah, perhaps for the first time in their lives.
It is in the difficult times we come the closest to Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah
