Well, Omicron variant Covid is shooting through about every place on the globe, and we are not immune, it seems, regardless of vaccination status. You cannot stop an enemy that not only is invisible, but is already past the gates. 

Surrender?

Yep, but not to Omicron, and not to fear. Surrender to God and His infinite mercy. For those of us who trust in the LORD, this is not a new thing, but part of being on this side of heaven, waiting for the Lord Jesus to return, to make all things new and to live eternally on a new earth. 

And now, for a richer discussion of what that looks like: check out this link and let Dr. Paul Raabe take you into his assessment of what is coming to a new world near you.

And as far as all this stuff goes, for those in Christ, it is a win-win, as St. Paul says in Philippians 1:21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

Go in His peace and know He will guide us through the madness of this present age.
