My throat is sore…is it a tickle? Is it COVID-19?
I have a raging headache…can’t think. Is it COVID-19?!?
Am I hot…or just warm? Do I have a fever? Is it COVID-19?!?!?
Every single little twitch or twinge these days leads me down a rabbit hole of wondering if I’ve been exposed to COVID-19. I start contemplating whether I’ve been diligent in wearing a mask or social distancing. I wonder if I’ve been exposed…or worse, could I have exposed someone else?
Am I alone if hyper-analyzing each little upset tummy or ache and pain?
The crazy thing is that I’m not afraid of getting COVID-19. I know my family is fairly healthy and we would likely weather the storm well. More than that, I know that God would heal us in the physical or we would be healed completely in heaven. There is great comfort in knowing that the believers will be healed no matter what.
This never-ending saga of not-knowing how the pandemic ends is wearing thin on each of us in different capacities. In my case, I’ve been leaning heavily on Psalm 55:22 (NASB), “Cast your burden upon the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.”
