We have had a rough road to ride on for the last several months. The COVID-19 virus is causing havoc on our country. It seems to be getting worse then getting better.
The rioting, burning of businesses, shootings, beatings, that are going on in our big cities is not only frightening, but very sad.
It seems the all these cities are run by democrats. Don’t know if that means something.
Encouragement for the discouraged.
The Pastor of my church had a message on this. The title was From Brokenness to Blessings.
He said he understands all of us who are fearful, and frustrated. We have battles every day, and to have this be on top of it all is hard, at best.
What are his answers?
- God guarantees victory. Pretty simplistic right? However, we often forget that. We forget that God is in charge and He won’t give us more that we can handle.
- The best is yet to come. Hard to see that right now, but I bet we look back at this a few years from now and feel we are so blessed at that moment.
Do not go into hiding.
We do not need to hide in our basements. We need to be out there helping those who are overcome with fear, and depression. This is the perfect time to show our love for them.
We have the love of God in our hearts. We need to let others know how that feels.
How do we hold on?
How are you doing? Are you having trouble getting up every morning because the world is crazy right now? Do you dread turning on the TV, because there is so much negativity? Are you struggling because the virus is closing down your work?
You certainly are not alone.
I feel your pain.
I am in total lock down. Haven’t been in retail store in four months. No restaurants. Only drive up, and take out. Can’t see my children. I text them and call them a lot.
Why am I in lock down? I am afraid I have three underlying problems with my health. If I was to get the virus, I am gone.
Am I crying and frustrated? At times I am close, but I am suppose to be the father figure, and show strength and perseverance.
Again, God is with you. Jesus is with you. They are just a prayer away.
Lean on them for your strength. They are you fortress. They are your protectors.
