During the COVID-19 pandemic, popular speaker and author Billie Jauss has one question for you to consider: In whom do I trust?
On the Start Small, Believe Big podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network, Joss tells listeners she has struggled during this season with what information she should trust—and from whom. "If I'm on Facebook, and there are people posting things, I should know better than to believe things I read on Facebook sometimes. But of course, I'll click on the story. I'll look over the story. I'll start reading it [and] panic will rise in my soul, fear, anger, distress, despair ... the overwhelming feelings that I have [will] take my heart and my spirit and drag me down a path where I should have never allowed myself to go," she says.
All this has moved Jauss to remember what she calls the "most trustworthy source that I have"—the Lord. "God is my refuge and fortress, my God in whom I trust," she says. But she recognizes this may not keep people from experiencing fear in this difficult season. People ask her questions, she says, such as "'What if I get the coronavirus? What if I get sick? What if I die? What if I lose my job?'
"I'm not saying some or all of that may not happen," Jauss says. "But what I am saying is if any of that happens, God is with you. Jesus is right there by your side."
