Our world is currently suffering from a pandemic. A virus swept through our nation and has caused many people to remain indoors for a majority of their days. Some people already lived alone, some people have had to quarantine themselves due to sickness. Businesses are closed and human interaction has been severely reduced. This has caused many to suffer from depression. Many need a human touch to feel loved.
Let God be your source of companionship. Let Him be your everything. Allow him to re-establish Himself as the provider of all. He provides comfort to those in need. Also, the bible tells us not to forsake the assembly of ourselves and that two is better than one. With that being said, I want to encourage you not to forsake your community.
FaceTime your friends and loved ones. Set up a Zoom call. Park at the end of your sister or brother’s driveway and have a conversation with a megaphone. Whatever you need to do, do it. Don’t allow the enemy to play on your emotions and make
you believe you have no one. Express your thoughts. Talk to someone about how you are feeling. If you are feeling anxious or down, talk about it and be real about it. As believers, we need to stick together like never before. Check on your friends and family members who you haven’t spoken to in a while.
Although things have changed in an instant, one thing remains the same. Jesus is still a friend that sticks closer than a brother. Don’t lose sight of that. Be encouraged friends. Trouble won’t last always. Until next time, be big, be balanced, be blessed.
