“Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will not believe.” John 4:48 We have been praying for a miracle for God to put a stop to this relentless invasion of the Covid-19 virus. God granted us a miracle in January after Taal Volcano erupted and spewed ashes that reached Metro Manila, even up to the Ilocos region. It disrupted classes, work schedules and flights in and out of Manila. Listening to the experts, it seemed as if an eruption of great magnitude was inevitable. But our people prayed and God spared us the destruction, the loss of lives, and the heartbreak. Today, do we dare pray for yet another miracle? Observing what is happening in other countries like Italy, with far superior health services than ours, the normal course for this virus epidemic does not bode well for our country. People dying with Covid-like symptoms but who have not been tested, are not even part of the already alarming statistics given out by the DOH everyday. We just know about them because they are part of our circle. We need our eyes of faith to see what God sees. Death is no stranger to God. It is a way to bring His beloved people to their real home where there is no more mourning or weeping. We are devastated here for all the doctors who left the battlefield, for all the patients who lost the fight, but in heaven there is rejoicing, maybe even a celestial parade to welcome them where they truly belong! Where we see the world stopping, all the money and time lost, God sees healing and renewal. He is helping not only nature to mend, but our souls to take a much needed rest from all the harassments of our busy lives. If we take God at His Word, we need not be anxious for anything. By prayer and petition, and even with thanksgiving, we just need to present our requests to Him, and His peace, which transcends all understanding, will guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7) Yes, I am praying for a miracle which is well within God’s power to grant, but I also know our lives are in His hands. He is in control and we just need to trust Him because He knows exactly what He is doing. IG @patriciapaterno
