This morning I woke up with the above verse on my mind and in my heart. Undoubtedly, this newsletter might find you at home, self-quarantined–depending on where you live–working from home, streaming your church services, possibly doing school, etc all online! What a day and age we live in where there’s even the possibility to do those things if there’s capacity. It’s easy, during this time with what we’re facing in the world right now, to fear. Fear can grip us and cause us to be anxious and worried over things within our control, but then we fret over very many things outside our control as well. Fear causes us to seize control, rely on our own strength and power, which eventually leads to bitterness and hardness of heart. Love asks us to release our worries/anxieties on the One who is Love, and to trust and lean on him. Love invites us to rest in the One who is above all, in all and through all. When we tap into the love that God as for us we are able to live in wisdom and discernment, we are able to reach out to those living in fear and hopelessness and show them the love of God, meeting them where they’re at. In the midst of your possible quarantine, I pray you can have sweet, intimate times with our Savior. How is he inviting you to tap further into his all abiding love?
