It Will Be Alright

Our local school system has just started. I'm sure that if it hasn't already, it will soon be starting for your area also. Whether the year is starting in-person, distance learning, or a combination of the two, there is much apprehension from school employees, parents, and children. This year has been stressful enough, but this involves kids and increases the worry and fear. Who knows if things will run smoothly this school year or need to be changed.

God knows! We may not understand or comprehend, but God knows. As Christians we must rely on that fact. “Fear not!” is the most repeated command in the Bible. It’s been said that there are 365 “Fear nots” in the Bible. This is not literally accurate, but "fear" is spoken of over 500 times in the KJV Bible. Often in relation to being taught to "fear God". But this simply means reverence to God alone and not to fear anyone or anything else. 

It has definitely been a tough year. testing our ability to not fear, not worry, and simply place our trust in God. Maybe this is ultimately God's goal for us this year. His way of telling us to place all our worries, anxieties, and fears in His hands. Maybe this is God telling us that "You Got This" because GOD'S GOT THIS.

Dante Bowe (of Bethel Music) just released a new song with Amanda Lindsey Cook called "Be Alright" which expresses this sentiment.

"'Be Alright' is dedicated to 2020," shared Bowe on social media. He continued, "Dedicated to people from different backgrounds, ethnicities, cultures, and point of views. Many of which have fallen subject to symptoms and effects of things like the Covid-19 Pandemic, Racial Injustice and/or hard, natural life situations. Things like financial struggle, job security, and relational challenges all matched with the inability to go to church, marital strain, and kids being unable to go to school."
