I am going to tell you that I honestly believe That despite all of the changes and craziness that has been going on day today the Lord it’s calling for restoration. Calling for us to restore our relationship with Him, our families, friends, and our lives overall. A time to refocus, and just slow down.
Since this whole coronavirus debacle it has tested us as human beings in different ways. Heck, even I have been tested! The feeling of a bit of anxiety and being overwhelmed. I’ve had to catch myself and refocus.
Having to figure out how to make things work as changes are made day today. But I am always reminded there’s always a reason for the season! I am going to always stay positive and that where are my thoughts dwell that this is a rough season of restoring lives.
The world has been going in a fast forward pace for a while: People having to work two jobs at a time not getting enough sleep/ rest because they’re leaving one job and going to another. People who are putting to much time in and focus with their jobs and not with their children… the list can go on. Although we may be losing something superficially, I believe we can be gaining something much more deeper.
One Of my friends back in Canton Ohio couldn’t have said it better:
“Just sitting here thinking…Most of us work 50 weeks a year just to get two weeks off. Enjoy this time with yourself, kids and families because even if it is the end would you rather spend it anywhere else. Enjoy the moment because the moment is all we really have. See the blessing because it’s a blessing in everything. Make peace with life and life will make peace for you”💕❤- Shamiko M.
I leave with this:
Matthew 6:25-34 New International Version (NIV)
Do Not Worry
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
