For Such a Time as This

Siblings in Christ, we are living through unprecedented and challenging times. The Covid-19 pandemic has dramatically changed how we live each day. Folks self-quarantining, practicing social distancing and from what I hear may be a state-wide "shelter-in-place," it is easy to feel overwhelmed as we wonder what next. As easy as it would be to allow our fears and anxieties to take hold, I would suggest that maybe we can use this time to find solace in God's Word. Each day, read some scripture and ask, "What is God saying to me today?" Perhaps sing or read your favorite hymn and reflect on what it is in the hymn that touches your soul. Take some time for personal devotions and remember to allow time for God to talk back!

While you are taking good care of yourself, consider reaching out to a neighbor, friend or family member. Call, text or email them. Let them know you are thinking of them and holding them in prayer.

We will get through this. We will be a changed people when this is done. I'm hoping we will be a gentler, more caring and faithful people for the challenges we are experiencing.

Psalm 46:1

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Psalm 46:10

Be still, and know that I am God.
