I hope and trust that you and your family are safe and feeling comfortable. All of us in Humanity’s Team are here for you and with you during this challenging time.
As we enter the third month of the global pandemic, people have many questions on their minds about health, finances, safety, and, in general, what the re-opening of the world will look like.
None of us have answers to those kinds of questions. But as the old saying goes, time will tell.
This question, though—the one I’m hearing being asked with both sincerity and anger—is one I believe I do have an answer to… “Where is God in all of this?”
Some are saying that since we don’t want anything to do with God in our schools, at work, and in public discourse, God has retreated.
I heard one version of that sentiment that goes like this (and please forgive the overuse of the male pronoun)…
He, being a gentleman, has deserted us and left us to our own devices. If we don’t want anything to do with God, He says “fine” and departs our life. We are now left alone to fend for ourselves during the pandemic.
How does that sit with you?
I believe the idea that God has left us is the furthest thing from the truth.
I believe the Divine is very present now and is speaking to each of us who are willing to hear.
I believe the Divine actually has always been present sharing messages of love, hope, and possibility but we’ve mostly been too busy to really hear Her/His messages.
Now, as many of us find ourselves less busy and more available, there is an opening where we can take time for silence and really listen for and hear the Divine speaking to us.
