I have wrestled throughout the day whether to post or not post. To be honest I wasn’t “Feeling it”. I wanted to lay in bed today and let the world slip. But a small voice kept whispering into my despair, “Get up. Get moving. You are going to be OK. I have you.”
The roller coaster of human emotion that is the Pandemic COVID19, has made me a bit unsettled today. So, I took my own advice this after noon, and stopped listening to the voice of fear and panic and I breathed in Jesus and breathed out His peace.
These are unsettling times. The prevailing winds are panic and fear. But Ladies and gentlemen, we have the power to CHANGE THE NATURE OF THE WIND! Our strength does not come from how much toilet paper we have, or how many pounds of meat we hoarded. OUR STRENGTH COMES FROM THE LORD…HIS JOY dismatles fear in a second! HIS LIGHT bursts forth and decimates panic.
It is not time to shrink back in fear and woe. It is time to be STRONG AND COURAGEOUS. When everything in us screams, “You can’t handle this storm.” Breathe in Jesus and Breathe out, “I AM THE STORM!!!” Let’s change the very nature of the prevailing winds from fear and panic, lack and greed; to that of LOVE and JOY , COMMUNITY and UNITY!
Stop looking at the grocery store as if it will save you. Take a breath and recognize where your help comes from!
I lift up my eyes to the hills– where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
The Lord is not shocked over what is happening. He is standing in the midst of this with us. Together (with the Lord) we are UNSTOPPABLE!
