Thought for the Day: Lately, is seems the entire world is changing on a daily basis. One day we are going to work and everything appears normal, the next we are social distancing, then we find ourselves under a stay at home order and now we are wearing masks and gloves when we venture out of the house. All these changes are enough to make a person become stressed and anxious.
Where can we go to settle our thoughts, our minds, our lives?
Here are some tips I suggest:
Spend time in prayer. God has broad shoulders and can carry whatever is bothering you, turn it over to him. Spend time in relationship and talking to God about your day.
Remind yourself, this is only temporary. We will see an end to this pandemic. We will get back out in public and see one another.
Call someone you know who might be feeling down and try to cheer them up. Most times you end up cheering yourself up in the process.
Get outdoors. Go for a little walk and look for signs of God’s presence; a flower about to bloom, the gentle breeze, the warmth of the sun, the birds singing etc.
Name 3 blessings each day. It may seem difficult at first, but over time you will see these blessings easily and then have to pick only 3!
We are not in this alone. We have each other to reach out to and lean on, either on the phone or perhaps in a zoom meeting! There is a lot of positive going on all around us. Look for that positive energy.
Prayer: Loving God, in the midst of all the chaos, let us seek you. Allow us to find ways to settle our anxiety and stress in this time. Be with each of us as we go about our days not knowing what each new day might bring. Remind us you are in control. We know you will never leave us or forsake us Lord. Amen.
