When My “What Ifs” Become “But God”

This past year and a half has been a time of “What Ifs”. Every day we are bombarded with news reports on Covid…economy…political unrest…racial inequity…and the list goes on and on. I find myself overwhelmed with information and confounded by misinformation. Each time I think the storm is finally passing over it rolls in again. I have had moments of ” What Ifs”. What if we have to be quarantined again? What if the children have to learn remotely again? What if this round of virus totally paralyzes the economy? What if another insurrection is successful? What if riots break out in the streets? What if one of my family members or loved ones contracts this awful virus? What If..What If…What If! Just when my restless mind begins to morph into worry…I hear a still quiet voice calmly whisper…just loud enough for me to hear…But God…But God…But God…and just like the little engine that wasn’t sure if he could make it…I hear my heart go from…I think I can…to I knew I could…But God…He is the total game changer in a world that is filled with “What Ifs”

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.

Deuteronomy 31:8

Thank you Lord for always gently reminding me, that although the world appears to be totally upside down, you are always with me. What is wrong will soon become right, and what is tilted will soon become straight. Your presence in my life is my constant stabilizer…my what ifs are quieted and my But God become my song. In Jesus name…Amen
