B is for Believe ~ 4/2/20

I’m a doubter.  Slow to trust.  Always superstitious.  That’s my problem.  I have a hard time believing anything.

In this time of COVID, my doubts have grown exponentially.  I won’t go on about all my crazy theories.  Suffice it to say, I am off the chain.  Back in the day, when my anxiety spun me out of control like this I always re-centered myself by going to church.  Not to a Mass but to an empty church whose doors were always open.  Saying a little prayer and lighting a candle.  In absence of the ability to do that, instead I’ve been meditating. Remembering versus from years past.

“Why are you so frightened?” Jesus answered.  “What little faith you have.” Matthew 8:26

Imagine the scene.  Jesus calming the wind and the sea.  Can you just picture it?  Now that’s something in which we can all believe. Or not because you know religious freedom and all that jazz.  Hopefully though everyone has something to turn to and believe in during these crazy days.

As always, more to come.

  1. The anxiety is REAL, yo. For a change though, it’s not just us, but the whole world. (well not the covidiots) Faith and Hope have seen me through a lot and they’ve not left me yet.

    1. I’m glad Faith and Hope are working for you. Up to a point I’ve realized my prior anxiety was baseless but this?!?!? I’m thinking yep I knew this day would come.

  2. The old “make a visit” thing the nuns always talked about… It can be quite calming. I spent a few days at the Trappist monastery in Conyers, Georgia and it was nice just sitting in the chapel when no one else was there…
