Heart Thoughts-Is this the name...?

I first heard of it on a radio segment at the beginning of the week. A bad virus that was going around. I didn't think much of it until later that evening when I saw a link online, and read about it being a respiratory virus. As I read that first article, my stomach turned into knots.

"Is this the name of it? Is this what will take her from us?"

I couldn't help but be gripped by fear at what had become a monster staring at me from my computer screen.

I have cried several times since then. The fear of this virus, that starts just like any other cold or sniffle but turns worse quickly. For children like Waverly, this is bad news. And I am scared.

But I am seeking to remember Who holds her, Who has numbered her days before she was even a twinkle in my eye. He loves her and His plans for her will be accomplished, whether that includes this virus or not, as well as the outcome of that.

Lord, help me trust You. Hear
