About the Book

Two pertinent questions that were foremost in our minds regarding the COVID-19 pandemic were “when will this virus end? After about two months and no immediate end in sight, the second question became “what’s going to get us through this pandemic?” This unprecedented virus changed our entire way of living. Businesses, stores, schools, and houses of worship were closed. Shelter in place, wash your hands frequently, use hand sanitizer, wear a mask, social distance became the mandated directives of the day. Many jobs were lost due to business shut-downs, which created economic hardships for many families It was my prayer that as I prepared these messages “for such a time as this," I would be guided by the Holy Spirit to deliver a Word that would offer peace (“Perfect Peace”), encouragement (“Yes There Is!”), salvation (“God’s Gift of Repentance”), God’s protection (“Refuge at the Lord’s Table”), and a desire within the hearer to have a closer relationship with God (“Sheltered in Place”). As you read, visualize, and hear these messages in your heart, mind, and spirit, it is my prayer that you will be able to answer the question “WHAT WILL GET US THROUGH?”
