`If I could make the last couple of months disappear from my life, I would!` Have you ever uttered these words? We are going through these same emotions right now. In this post, I share some super raw emotions. I hope I share them well to prove a point: God is still good no matter what you see right now!

Is the government requiring masks like the government requiring seat belts? I don't think so. Is there anything the government can force you to do that will help you live longer? I don't think so. Obedience to God is the only metric that will dictate the length of your life for which His perfect plan calls.
