The Quiet Life?

In regards to work – I have seen God’s grace at work where I treat high-risk patients at an in-patient facility. It’s brought opportunities to come alongside them when many patients express their anxieties and battle with depression that is accentuated by the current events. It brings up really special opportunities to come alongside others in their grief and pray with them. Life has not become quieter in many ways as I have been working more hours and overall things are more strained, but through it, the Lord has been reminding me of my daily and desperate need for Him. If there were to be a themed verse for me, it would be:

Lamentations 3:22-26
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.

In regards to home – Literally weeks before Virginia shut down, one of my closest friends became my housemate. At the time, we had no clue all that God had in store for the months to come! God so kindly met unknown needs so that instead of coming home everyday to an empty house, there was someone else around to simply, “live life with,” and through it all helping to point each other to Christ.
