Hopping on the bandwagon is not normally my style, but when it is felt deep in my heart to talk about a subject, I don’t ignore my creator. Now, I’m not an expert, I can give my advice and my honest opinion, but it shouldn’t be taken in vain.
I understand that everyone is in a panic and that all of this can be confusing, scary, and life-threatening. Let me start off by saying this. “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.” -Philippians 4:6-7
That comes down from management. I never wonder why the percepts are the way they are, they just came to be. Like everything else in this God-given world. Who am I to judge the one who makes the final judgement call?
So while we are going through these times and he is calling us to humble ourselves, remember that the plan had already been laid out long ago. Our world has been going through so much hate, disturbances, and quarls. I think it’s time for some peace, humility, and repentance. I think Covid-19 is part of that. It feels so clear to me that when we all stop to pause and really focus on the who, what, why in our life, it all starts to unfold what truly matters to us the most. It doesn’t take a death, heartbreak, a plague, or fear. It takes the time to slow down, reflect, and breathe. A little piece of Heaven on earth.
Maybe we can all put aside our differences, our addictions, our trials, tribulations, our hate and discrimination, and finally come together as a nation. Could we all see each other as equals? It’s what we are whether anyone truly wants to admit it or not. Blood runs through our veins all the same and we are here to serve the one true King. It’s up to you to make that decision, no one else.
I could sit here and make my points and try to get you to believe what I am saying is the truth. I will not do that because I am only one of the brilliant minds led to show the way in our lives everlasting. If there is anything I’ve done, it’s just to spread some enlightenment and some testimony to something that is trying to destroy us as a society. Don’t let these trying times rule your life. We are strong and we will rise above as we’ve done so many other times throughout history. People are here and willing to listen. Take advantage of that. Send your love because it’s all we’ve got that does any good.
We love the verses before we have to live them. Best thing I’ve read because of the truth that lies so deep and heavy in it. The word is living and alive. It’s always convenient and up to date. Just mull on that thought. There’s nothing that the living testimony doesn’t cover. Proof is in the writing. -Jason
