The plans detailed in my previous post of March 9th were completely altered at a dizzying rate because of COVID19. I did fly to DC, see my family, celebrate my 72nd birthday, attend my Lone Star Toastmasters meeting at Hill Center on the 11th and then the major changes began. Time for adaptability and a united effort as we seek to curtail the devastating affects of an unseen, fast-moving enemy of all.
This is a time for following guidelines, precautions and even temporary commands by authorities. A time to be creative and resourceful with our families, supplies and communications. Maybe reconsider our priorities. We may have health one day and be ill or gone the next. More people are recovering from the virus than losing their life from it but it’s always good to be ready to face eternity. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23 Have you received this gift of Eternal Life? Ask God to help you see your need of forgiveness and then receive this priceless precious gift. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Take time to realize that the only true help and comfort comes from Almighty God who knows completely our fears, our needs, our particular circumstances. Prayer is a privilege that He has given us and reading his comforting words in the Psalms & Proverbs of the Bible will do much more for us than watching the news. ‘The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety of of the LORD.” Proverbs 21:31
