About me

Oh Hey! I'm Alice, I'm 22 and I'm from Belfast. Welcome to my corner of the internet!

mid-week musings (mid-pandemic musings)

Well, this has been an eventful few weeks. I've just finished university classes 6 weeks early, meaning that I'll not get to see the year out with my friends who have been by my side since day one almost four years ago! All exams have been cancelled and replaced with coursework, our formal, which was going to be our last hoorah has been cancelled and graduation has likely been postponed. And to top it all off, they've cancelled Eurovision, the main source of joy in my life while my world was tumbling down around me. 



So how can I possibly still find joy in these strange and difficult times? Yes, it majorly sucks that everything is ending so abruptly and we're not getting the 2020 that we hoped and planned for but this pandemic didn't take God by surprise! Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever! 

One of my favourite songs, Still God by Elevation Worship declares 


Before the world began
It wasn't spoken yet
You were still God
And You are still God
After Your final breath
It wasn't over yet
You were still God
And You are still God


He is still God in the midst of our troubles, He is still God in the midst of our fear, He is still God in the midst of our disappointment, He is still God in the midst of our loneliness, He is still God in the midst of our uncertainty. He is STILL God. The same God that saw us through our other low points will certainly see us through this one, so that's why I'm clinging tightly on to hope.
