An open letter to Covid 19

Thank you Covid 19,

Thank you for bringing humanity alive. 

I sit and watch celebrities, politicians, moms, dads, teens, and all the rest post videos of life since you came. I'm seeing musicians post music videos in their bathrooms. There has always been this gap between the famous and the rich in the world and the rest of us. 

It has stirred envy, desire, and idolatry in the best of us. But since you came we are seeing that gap close. We are seeing the reality of every single person's humanity amongst us. 

I'm not happy that you are here. 
I'm not happy that you are taking lives and are letting the spirit of fear to run wild among us. 

And I pray you leave. 

But I will be thankful in all things.

So today I want to thank you for settling this world a bit. 

I want to thank you the most for waking everyone up to their mortality. The mass majority of people did absolutely everything they could to ignore this. 
We've numbed our mortality with drugs, we've made it the center of our jokes on stages, we've deceived ourselves into thinking it's not real with movies.
But YOU, have awoken us from our deception. 
You've reminded each of us that death haunts us, and that we are dreadfully afraid of it. 
We doubt our beliefs in reincarnation and we realize that maybe the universe won't save us this time. 

I want to thank you Covid 19, because now, maybe now, my little voice will be heard. That maybe just one person will turn their ear, maybe one person will let their blinders drop, maybe one person will want to know the truth. 

Covid 19, you came to unleash destruction. You came to kill and conquer. But what you didn't know was that this life is just the beginning. 
That I do have a voice and I have a brilliant and beautiful story to tell. 
One that extinguishes the flames of fear. 
One that gives hope to the hopeless. 
One that you can't steal. 
I don't know who is behind your beginning. But I know who's behind the ending. And, covid 19, it's certainly NOT you. 

So thank you, because now, if it's even just one, people will turn to a true redeemer. They will look at their mortality and cry out for more. Because we were made for eternity. And when they cry out, you know who will show up? 
A kind and merciful God. 
A loving King who instead of stealing lives, came to exchange His own for ours. 

One who isn't afraid. 

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
27 “Yes, Lord,” she replied, “I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God,who is to come into the world.”

John 11:26-27
