Hi Joanna, sorry to gatecrash your thread, you see I'm married rather than single. I've been reflecting on and comparing 2020 with 2008, the start of the financial crisis. Bit of background, I've got my own business that's linked to the construction industry, employs a dozen staff and so there's quite a responsibility there. For me personally, in 2008 my relationship with God was not what it should have been with too much compromise, and I felt that the world was on my shoulders. I remember asking myself, how will I feel when I close my depot for the last time and hand the keys to a liquidator? I didn't have sufficient faith to believe that God would drag me through but He did, even though there was a lot of compromise.

Now we're in lockdown. The other week I had to close the business for goodness knows how long. However I don't have the deep foreboding I had back in 2008-14 but having said that I'm not sleeping at all well which tells me that my subconscious needs to remember Matthew 6:25-34. More work to do on my faith.
