How are you?
Yes, I am also on lockdown.
We are all in this together.
Some agree, some don’t.
But one thing I realized during this time is God reminding us to PAUSE.
Pause from our busy lives.
Pause from social media
Pause from social gatherings
Pause to be with our families
Pause to take a rest
Pause to realize what matters most
And pause to seek His presence.
Isaiah 55:6 “Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near.”
Are you getting bored?
Why not rekindle or start a relationship with God?
Search His Word, seek for the truth and be changed. “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
Are you anxious?
Trust in the Lord. Know that He is the All-powerful, All-knowing God. The Creator of all. The One who calms the storm. Then One who heals the sick and resurrects the dead.
What is too hard for Him?
In this world of uncertainty, He is and will always be our constant.
In the midst of this crisis, all God wants is for us to call on His name. Humble ourselves and turn away from our wicked ways.(2 Chronicles 7:14)
This is our wake up call.
Reminding us “My child, I’m still here. I never left. I’m still waiting”
We may be in different parts of the world. Different situations. Different faith.
But know that “This too, shall pass”.
And when this ends, we will be back to our normal, busy lives. May this be a reminder to PAUSE and remember that God exists. God heals. God is with us.
Through all the noise and chaos. I pray that you find peace in Him. The kind of peace that surpasses all understanding. The peace that knows that God is in control.
Ending this post (supposedly a short one) with a beautiful verse from Philippians:
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
