As a Christian has “Covid-19” took your Joy in Christ away, I am not talking about “happiness of life” or “cheeriness of life” but ”comfort of joy”

Remember the “Holy Spirit” gives us a comfort of Joy, in the mist of our pains, sorrows, even in our deepest fears that the world cannot experience. No matter how much we tell them about “The Spirit of the Living God” that “Jesus sent back to us” When he ascended back to His Father. He prayed to His Father to send “us” and not the world “Another Paraclete”, to walk along beside us in the mist of our trials. None of these things in life, takes us by surprise. For He has forewarned us of the things to come.

Contemporary English Version
I have told you this, so that you might have peace in your hearts because of me. While you are in the world, you will have to suffer. But cheer up! I have defeated the world. (John 16:33).
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, i shall fear no evil for thou art with me...
Im in this world, amongst them everyday. I have peace of mind and joy in my heart.
Fear nothing, but God, who has the power to cast into hell.
When witnessing the fear upon their faces, are we as the good Samaritan, or the priest that went to the other side of the street to pass them by?
God bless us all.
How can our joy be taken away when Jesus meets our needs, has always met our needs and will always meet them and if we are called to suffer, he will be holding our hands.
" I will never leave you or forsake you."
As flowers of Christ our Joy is not founded in circumstances of the world, that is why Paul was singing in Joy when he was in prison

One word brother... NO!

Christ is with me where ever I go, I abide in Him, He abides in me, I am nought without Him, He is my all. I am in the vine, if I remain in Him He remains in me.

What more could I want.
In the very beginning of the pandemic, I have to confess that yes, I was over worried and a bit stressed. It took me some time, however to reestablish that confidence and trust with the Lord, knowing that He is in control. The toughest shot was when at the time when the pandemic was at its highest, I got flu and I didn't know what to think and make out of it. I didn't go for any test, so until today I don't know what I was actually sick from. Many thoughts went through my mind as I am weak in this area of my life, I mean, I quickly panic sometimes. But through all of this I found peace, I found a deeper trust in the Lord. Soon after that I got better.
With all of this I mean that sometimes it probably gets a situation that we go through or a particular moment for us to learn. To learn how to trust more or to learn how to hope more or love.
I believe that in our Christian life we will always be learning. And this with the purpose to get closer to Him.
Did i miss something? Did we get a cure,, Then how do we rate the "Pandemic of Covid-19 virus is over and pass? By my perception, It just slowed down by "isolation'. by separation. and by quarantine. What did i miss?

Further more. what did we learn as a whole as christians? and I am not talking about "Nominal christians". I am all ears. and what measuring stick or standard are we using for determinations. Are there any signs of anything, for discussions?
