I am in Awe about this virus, and the works that are happening because of it.
God is showing his hand. In judgment?💁🏾♀️ most likely (lets be honest, the world has stepped outta line) but something I read online that was wonderful and eye opening. Hear me out. This virus is awful and people are dying. Yes, that is saddening BUT, within all of this, God has granted opportunities, and healing to not just humans but the earth itself.
The Land is Cleansing Itself
Let’s start with Healing of the Land because this just blew my mind. 🤯Have you heard about Italy “which seem like is suffering the most from this virus to me”. The river waters are clear now, air pollution is down, animals (swans and fish) are returning. Restoration is taking place. When I heard the story through social media, all I could do is smile. God is amazing. It took an contaminating virus for Italy to shut their borders down, to keep people out; and now the lands are restoring itself. That is amazing to me. As a human, I can understand it. Get rid of something toxic, and watch yourself flourish. (Insert Praise Break Here)🙌🏾🙌🏾
Hello, nice to meet you
Social Distancing, and Quarantine is forcing people to get to know those people who are under their roof. Well the ones who desire to be obedient and who their miss freedom are in the house. We may have seen all the memes and post about parents being home with their children more than they normally would. Everyone has been given the task to homeschool; no matter your educational background doesn’t matter. Some workers were quickly sent home to work from home full time during this pandemic to limit the spread of this virus. Many still have to travel to work. So there are blessings being sent even in the midst. Here’s another one, You can now work on your family dynamics, and if its broken you have time to start repairing it. Don’t miss this opportunity you may never get another one.
Let the Church say Amen…at Home
Last, but not least. I have come to this conclusion. This time we have in our homes, we can use it to search ourselves. We new get to see if all those years of church going meant anything. What I mean is, Did you learn anything that can help you get through this time away from the building. Do you have any bible study handouts? What was the last three subjects that was preached you can study? Can you pray alone, reach God, and get an answer? Or do you need that altar call or opening prayer to get through to God. Have you given God quality time, or are you constantly catching up on shows or social media? Are you only Saved and Sanctified inside the church, where you have an Audience? Can you be Holy when no one is looking. How much of your living is for God? All these questions we can throw at ourselves, now. Even if we feel shameful about how we are acting, maybe we felt like this a church free vacation. A long overdue vacation from the building, Its okay many of us have thought this. We now have this opportunity to see if I am real for God or if I need to let God fix me so that I can grow to be real for him. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by.
Out of everything said, we have been given a chance to fix something and/or ourselves. Protect yourself, and your Family. Most all try to enjoy this time with God! Stay Safe Everyone, and Continue to Pray that God’s Will be done. May one day we all get off of house arrest.✌🏾✌🏾✌🏾
