COVID'sDistracting Magician-Like Hand

When COVID first struck, it was new to even the experts. It was no wonder every single media development was “news to me.”

Throughout the course of the pandemic, the newness of God never stopped. There was always a “That’s news to me” in every day of the crisis.

However, when our eyes are on the latest tragic coronavirus happening or even our familiar “friend,” old-fashioned worry, we take our eyes off the newness of today.

Today, I sat down on a new set steps off my back door and it turned into a stairway to heaven as I picked up my guitar and sang a new song. PORTAL TO HEAVEN: The slight of hand of circumstance and the devil himself are distracting to those who follow his deliberate hand motions that point us in the wrong direction.

The LORD can always be trusted to show mercy each morning. ..Satan might not outwit us. For we are [must not be] unaware of his schemes. Lamentations 3:23 CEV, 2 Corinthians 2:11 NIV [Editor’s bracket]
