Four hospitals turned away Patel, who is seven months pregnant with the couple's first child, before she finally found one that would take him. But the level of care at Sardar Patel Covid Care Centre and Hospital, a makeshift pandemic facility on the outskirts of the capital, is so lacking that her husband is begging to leave. Around Sadanand Patel, 30, people are dying. He has barely any contact with doctors, and limited medicine. With 80% of his lungs already infected, he's terrified of what happens if his condition gets worse. There is limited medicine, and Sadanand said he had only interacted with a doctor once or twice in three days since he was admitted last Tuesday. He watched two men in beds nearby scream for medicine only to die within hours when their oxygen appeared to run out.
Trivia Question: Did Jehovah's servant Job have "windows" in his house? Answer: When Satan brought great suffering to Job by fully testing him, Job replaced all of the "windows" in his home with "mirrors". How did this happen? Job became so focused and self-absorbed about his own sufferings and what he was having to endure that all he could "see" was himself, his own problems. It was as though he had replaced the windows in his home with mirrors! Lesson: When a person has "windows" instead of "mirrors", they are no longer looking at themselves, they can see others, they can see Jehovah's creation, but if every window is replaced with mirrors, all the person sees is himself. So what do we do when we are suffering and enduring problems, such as physical health problems, depression, financial issues, etc, that feel so overwhelming and this causes us to focus mainly on our self, on our own problems? Like the picture here: We can ask Jehovah to do what he did for Job. Jehovah out of compassion for Job sent him a good friend who was a "Window Installer". The window installer's name was "Elihu" and he helped remove the mirrors in Job's house and replaced them with nice big windows so that Job could "see" Jehovah, "see" the bigger picture! What was the result of Jehovah sending this window installer and friend to Job? The result is found in Job's own words: So if you are suffering from a trial, ask Jehovah to send you a friend or an elder who "installs windows" so that your view is not like a home with many mirrors, but that your view looks like this: (These thoughts came from the recent video/talk by Ronald Curzan: Jehovah’s Name Is Sanctified (Matt. 6:9)
