COVID-19 pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic… This right now what we are all going through will change the world forever. I pray that God’s people come up with a drug that will heal these poor innocent people. I pray for the doctors, nurses, and medical staff all stepping up to the front lines. I pray for the elderly and those who don’t have the necessary resources most Americans consider second nature. I hope God’s people are not worried about money or when will they go back to work but are praying.

“Never stop praying.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17 (NLT)

We need to pray now more than ever. You can be dead in two weeks by shaking hands with someone. These are serious times. Let’s all make sure we are all keeping our social distance until advised to do otherwise safely.

Take that course you always wanted to take but didn’t have time to or exercise at home.It’s officially Spring maybe try some gardening and most importantly spend time with your family and loved ones. Have breakfast and dinner together. Take this time and be productive. From studying the Bible I learned that having a routine provides healing, so as many times a week I can I put on my running sneakers and hit the pavement. Jogging up to 60 minutes at a time. When I jog I use my aaptiv app that guides me to the finish line. This app is awesome if your looking for any kind of workout. To yoga and pilates and meditation and sleep to treadmill and strength training. I purchased this app on Good Friday so I got a killer deal but if you really want your abs back or would love to drop 20 lbs. go for it! It takes hard work and discipline to look good. And when you look better and feel better your chances of accomplishing your goals skyrockets. I do this around the same time every time I go. I finish my workout using my Fit Simplify resistance band workouts. I follow the little packet they provided along with the resistance bands and a cute little bag to always keep my bands together and organized. You can also go to their website http://www.fitsimplify.com or go to YouTube and search resistance band workouts. I have a Polar Loop Crystal Activity Tracker and a Polar H-10 Heart Rate Monitor. You can purchase this all from http://www.Amazon.com. Forget about Netflix binging and get ready for that hot summer body you’ve always wanted. As Americans I think its fair to say right now is a scary time in History but lets continue to pray more and more. Wash your hands now more than ever and continue to do so. Have faith and know God is in control and we will all heal from this. Right now is a test to see how you behave during a crisis. Follow the rules and wear a mask when going outdoors. When shopping for masks I had no luck so I use my scarf and wrap my face. God will protect you and hear your prayers if you follow the law and precepts He gives us in the Word. Remember anyone can call themselves a Christian but if you continue to ignore the commandments and live in sin you will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

Maybe you don’t know how to pray, the Bible will explain this for you Luke 11:1-13. First address God however you feel comfortable but do know and understand God is your father. You are His child. This may be a bit overwhelming for you but for a Christian prayer is a priority. And it is a wonderful experience. Remember if you are having trouble praying or don’t know what to pray for ask the Holy Spirit to help guide you. When I ask people if God speaks to them, they typically respond with no. God has spoken to me plenty of times.

"Call to me and I will answer you, and show you
great and unsearchable things you do not know." Jeremiah 33:3 (NIV)

God wants to speak to you. He wants to reveal himself. You just need to be willing. I have to admit I’m a bit needy. I always want God to talk to me and get frustrated when I don’t hear from him. But then there are those times I ask God a question and He answers it right away. I truly am blessed and have God’s favor. I’ve seen my light before that’s how bright it is. I can’t wait to get to Heaven and see Jesus and God the Father. Tears will stream my face occasionally, at least once a day at least but I’m not crying but tears are flowing. I know this is my spirit and heart actually crying because I am separated from God. But everything will be okay. I’m exactly where I’m suppose to be; alive and healthy. Something I couldn’t say for 14 years, that in itself is a miracle. I’m so much better now. I’m free. There is no more bondage. God said to me, “I am proud of you.” That day is a day I will never forget it made my 2020 unforgettable. I’m so proud of myself.

But enough about myself I want to pray for all of you. I pray for you all in good times and in bad. I pray for you all to feel the unconditional love God has for you always. Not just when you feel good or when things are going right but at all times. I promise it’s possible. I pray for you to really understand what it means to be a Christian and to provide my guidance when deemed necessary. I love you all.

Amen.
