Day 11. Well it’s actually day 12. However, I skipped yesterday.
I went and got some supplies and food to have for the emergency situation we have found ourselves in. I did not hoard, even though my mind fought fear in this area. I watched others struggling with fear, hoarding water, toilet paper and no wipes to be found in the store.
I have been up for hours now, listening to the word, and this message was strong in me.
THIS IS LONG BUT ON MY HEART.
I myself have wanted to have the attitude of this won’t happen here, this is a conspiracy, this is over dramatic etc, this is government control etc…
Churches canceling seems like a plot in a rapture movie…
Hear me out and no judging me. Y’all have your thoughts and questions!
Here is the truth WE ARE THE CHURCH!!
We can worship God with our families at home. This can not stop us from being the church.
Yes there are many issues with this situation. However IF WE DO NOT STOP PANICKING it will only get worse.
We can not keep running in masses to the stores and hoarding supplies. Number one your being selfish and greedy. Number two your in A CROWD of people 🤦♀️
Number three those who want to say it’s all fake and not serious, maybe it is and maybe it’s not. But why take a chance???
I have a new grandbaby on the way. Let me tell you this… the fact that hospitals in Italy have to turn away patients who need to be there for delivery of babies, HEART ATTACKS, STROKES, TRAUMA etc… because it’s filled with patients with this 🦠 virus means pull our heads out of the media, get on our faces before God, listen to our leader WHO GOD PLACED THERE that is saying if at all possible JUST STAY HOME.
Listen that is very hard for me. I hate being stuck at home.
I can go to work and clean homes making their homes a more sterile place to help them as well. I am blessed with my line of work.
If I go out I can respect the wash hands and don’t touch face guidelines and get what I need and get out of the crowds.
We have to listen to the Holy Spirit very closely right now.
Check on our elderly and shut ins.
Be strong in our faith for those struggling with all the thoughts in our heads. When one is weak the other can pull them back up. No one and I mean NO ONE is exempt from a moment of fear or weakness. So don’t pretend your better than anyone going through this hell right now. We all have our weak areas.
Yes laugh at the funny memes and have fun but don’t let it be at the expense of someone’s weakness.
We have people with loved ones in nursing homes and prisons that they can’t get to. It’s causing major grief and fear. Respect this. Check on them. They don’t think any of this is funny right now. That’s okay. Let them feel what they feel but love them through it.
I’ll tell you right now the situation of possible domestic travel bands, possibility of being told it’s a law to stay in my home, because there are areas that are restricted, other countries have major lockdowns going on… these are issues I have literally had nightmares about for many years. Movies maybe triggered it idk but it is a fear I have dealt with. So I won’t pretend I am here having it all together.
It is however my responsibility to get in my word, crank up my worship music, tell God I am scared 💩 less and ask Him to quiet my fear with His word and love. Then it’s my responsibility to share that same word and love with my kids and all who need it.
Today is a National Day of Prayer. We have a President who has found Gods love and no he isn’t perfect but neither are we. We need to love and support him. We need to pray for him today. We need to pray for our medical personal across the world. We need to pray for our politicians, those on the teams with cdc and leadership roles making life choices for us right now.
We need to pray for peace in our hearts, in our homes, in our cities. NOW IS THE TIME TO FORGIVE PEOPLES SHORTCOMINGS AND BIND TOGETHER AS FAMILY, BIND TOGETHER AS THE CHURCH, BIND TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY, BIND TOGETHER AS A NATION!!!
And for the Love of GOD ♥️(for reals) SHARE THE 🧻 🧻🧻🧻🧻🧻 TOILET PAPER, WATER 💧 AND FOOD 🥘 YALL STORED UP IN FEAR!!
God will provide.
