God Gives Us the Perfect Preparation for the Future Only He Can See

As we all live through social distancing, the loss of work, the risk of COVID-19, people we know/love becoming ill - some even dying, spending time in quarantine - certainly these things are not at all the things we ever imagined we would face. But these things are part of our present and our past and we are able to be encouraged by this quote from Corrie Ten Boom -
This is what the past is for. Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives is the perfect preparation for the future only He can see.
As we go through this time, let's be people who trust God is still in control. Let's trust this time is the perfect preparation for our future - and the future of the ones we love. Let's be people who trust God will never leave us and move forward as people whose lives who this trust.

I heard COVID-19 being referred to on the news as World War C - this virus has impacted the entire world and it is now part of our history and the history of the ones we love. When we look back on this time - and when the generations who come behind us learn about this time - let's be people who leave a testimony of trust and who modeled living this way as well, because we believe; "This is what the past is for. Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives is the perfect preparation for the future only He can see."
