This is a heavy time, my friends. There’s no arguing that. Fear and uncertainty are swirling around and we’re all feeling a bit unsettled.
But in the middle of the darkness, the light of God is shining more brightly than ever before.
Over the past few days, the internet has been flooded with images and videos of people coming together (social-distancing style, of course) in the name of encouraging one another. In particular, support for the healthcare workers on the front lines has been through the roof, and I am here for it.
As I scrolled Instagram this morning, one such video posted to @thelightblonde caught my eye, and I think I must have watched it on repeat a dozen times since.
The video captured a parking lot worship session of the song, “Way Maker” (which is stunning in its own right), sung through the open windows of hundreds of cars outside Piedmont Fayette Hospital.
Cars flashed their headlights and hands waved in praise as the powerful chorus overtook the outside air:
Light in the darkness
My God, that is who you are.
The whole scene was spirit-lifting and chill-inducing, but don’t just take my word for it—watch here for yourself:

A community coming together in their cars outside the Piedmont Fayette hospital to worship Jesus, pray for those who are sick and thank the incredible medical staff who are fighting on the front lines to save lives!!🙌🏼 #waymaker #MIRACLEWORKER #thankyou #praiseJesus #healer #Godsgotthis
One quick scroll through the post comments made it apparent I wasn’t the only one reduced to tears by the video.
One commenter, who appears to be a healthcare worker herself, wrote, “This soothes my heart. We are working with [little] protection because we don’t have enough equipment, masks, gowns, etc. But the genuine appreciation and kindness from people that has been poured out over me is humbling and soothing to my ragged soul.”
Another commenter wrote, “This is exactly what we need right now! We need to place our fears in HIS hands. HE is a miracle worker. HE will bring us through this,” and I couldn’t agree more.
No doubt about it, “Way Maker”—originally from singer/songwriter Sinach—was written for a time such as this.
Our God truly is Way Maker, Miracle Worker, Promise Keeper, Light in the Darkness. What a comfort to be reminded that is who He is.
