Where I find peace during Covid-19
Turn on the tv, radio or open any form of social media and the words you will hear is Coronavirus, Covid-19, lockdown or social distancing..
There is so much fear in the air. Fear of becoming sick, fear of losing money, fear of running out of essentials, fear of not knowing when this will end and worst of all, a fear of death!
I understand people are scared, I understand how serious the situation is, but rather then succumb to my fear (which does not change the situation anyway), I am choosing to lean into faith.
Jesus takes away my fear of death.. I mean, I definitely don't want to die, but if I do, I know where I am going and that gives me peace.. so with that covered.. I have no room for fear.
Jesus died for me..(and you) even though he knew how much I would mess up in life.
He still thought I was worth it.. and whenever I have called upon him for help, he's been there, by my side, guiding me and loving me along the journey. To date I have survived 100% of every situation I thought I would never get through.. so I thank HIM!
So for me, although this is an unimaginable time and a trying time.. I am choosing to enjoy my isolation days with my family. I am choosing to get to know my kids and husband better, on a deeper level and to build better communication and relationships with them.
I am choosing to pray more and rely on God more.
I am choosing to get to know him better and who he created me to be, without all the distractions and rushed pace of my normal everyday life..
I am finding the blessings in my 'isolation everyday life'..
I am praying for all those negatively affected by this virus and I am using this time to be still and quiet and grow.
