Although the world may seem as if it could be falling apart at the moment, it might not be as bad as we presume. The book of John chapter 14 states, "Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.4 You know the way to the place where I am going." Jesus is informing us that there is a heaven above in verse 2. He doesn’t want us to fret about earthly things; although there may be storms that shake us, we must look towards the goal of Heaven.
Jesus goes into depth about worrying in Matthew 6:26-34, "26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life 28 "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Although that may have been a lengthy reading, it is imperative at this moment that we trust in God and do not lose sight of the promise of Heaven He has given us if we follow His will. We must not worry about the things happening to us in these times but help others.
To sum this all up, Jesus gave a goal which is Heaven. We must not worry about these troubling times nor the little things, but we must pray to God that we make it through this trial. The pathway to Heaven is not an easy walk. Jesus says this in Matthew 7:4, "But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." Therefore, we must look to God in these times, help others (as we are allowed to), communicate with other people, and pray that we don’t stumble and fall off of the narrow pathway. I hope that everyone stays healthy and safe in these times; you are all in my prayers.
