As I write this I am hopeful that the PM will announce at 4:30pm that we will at least move to Alert Level 2 before the weekend. Why, because for me the thing I find hardest is not being able to worship together on Sundays, not being able to gather together physically for prayer. Yes we can worship online, we can pray together using ZOOM but I have to say for me it's invigorating being together in the same room.
Time will tell what happens for us in Auckland but one thing we know for sure is that no matter what happens, no matter what we may be feeling, no matter what we are going through - God is there as our everpresent source of help.
Psalm 121 (NLT)
1 I look up to the mountains— does my help come from there? 2 My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth! 3 He will not let you stumble; the one who watches over you will not slumber. 4 Indeed, he who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps. 5 The Lord himself watches over you! The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade. 6 The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night. 7 The Lord keeps you from all harm and watches over your life. 8 The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever.
As you continue in your week I pray God will comfort and guide you.
