...my simple attempt to remind myself (and others) of vital "best practices" during our virus-crisis.
#StayHome - ironic how our war against the coronavirus has forced us into something we all say we have too little of (unhurried, time at home). "Lord, how can we redeem this time for our spiritual growth?"
#WashHands - reminds me that this disease can be anywhere and need to be cleansed from my body. "Jesus, just as I need to keep clean on the outside, reveal to me what needs cleansing on the inside (unforgiveness, longer anger, self-centered pride).
#ShareJoy - even while sheltering-in-place, I have been encouraged by family and friends by a social media post, a card or note in our snail-mailbox, a welcomed phone call...even a surprise delivery of beautiful flowers. Opportunities to bless others in a time of reflection with a truth from Scripture.
#PrayOften - an exhortation to those who never pray and a reminder to those who do ... "Pray without ceasing" (1Thessalonians 5:17) is not a command to do nothing but pray, 24/7. It is meant to motivate us to never give up on prayer, to make your life a prayer (thinking, being, doing). Pray often, whenever you thin of a person, place, or problem that needs God's presence, protection and provision.
