Spiritual lessons from lockdown

Originally appeared online in the teen series Trending -  April 26, 2022.

Everything had come to a halt and there was no sign of it changing anytime soon. As the pandemic started, and then continued, nothing was the way it used to be. Because of the technology I had grown up with, I was accustomed to things moving and changing at a rapid pace. So while I knew I needed patience to make it through these tough times, I still found myself growing impatient, anxious, and fearful. I just wanted my life to return to normal as quickly as possible and to be able to see my friends and family again. 

As the months dragged on, I felt I was slipping into a deep hole of fear, anxiety, and restlessness and it seemed like I couldn’t pull myself out. Finally, I turned to my parents for help. Together we turned to the Bible and Mary Baker Eddy’s writings, as we had many times in the past when one of us needed healing.
