I have been finding that with all the crazy things going on in the world, it’s very hard to stay tuned to what the Lord is saying and not get distracted by the media and what everyone else is talking about. Even with being “locked-down” it’s difficult, with all the news feeds, to sort out truth from hype and fear mongering. We all know what fear is – false evidence appearing real. It seems a lot of that is going on right now to take away our concentration on what we need to do and replace it with learning all the new rules and regulations! These seem to be changing every day – if not several times a day! Stay tuned for this interview, stay tuned for these new rules, stay tuned for this news update.
I found the solution is to stay tuned to the Lord who knows the end from the beginning. Keeping our eyes on the Lord when we fear is easy to say, but sometimes it’s hard to quiet our minds and spirits so that we can just listen – to HIM!!!!!
As I wrote in “Walking in the Spirit – There’s Power in the Wind” when we fear, we cannot hear. Especially with what is going on right now, the most important instruction we can hear is the Lord’s.
In the crazy, locked-down, world, with information coming at us on all sides, I found the best thing to do is get quiet before the Lord, and ask Him about it. It’s amazing how His instructions come and how He helps us sort out truth from fiction. Then He gives us the peace that passes all understanding. This peace only comes from taking the time to listen to what He is saying. It’s amazing how He shows us His secrets and His instructions. Jeremiah 29:11 tells us His plans for us are for good and not evil, plans for a future and a hope.
Staying tuned to what He is saying is the answer. What is happening did not take Him by surprise, nor is He wringing His hands in heaven wondering what to do! Just get quiet, ask and then listen.
So in this crazy, virus controlling world, stay tuned to His voice and peace will come.
Announcement – Please stay tuned to these blogs as I give updates on my new book, “A Lifetime of Love – The Love Relationship”. It should be published around the end of June, but I will update you when it is available for purchase.
“A Lifetime of Love – The Love Relationship” is about the Father’s love for us as His children, Jesus’ love for us as His Bride, and Holy Spirit’s love for us as our comforter and friend – as well as our earthly love for our spouses, family and friends and the hurt we may have in dealing with real, ordinary, imperfect people. Lots of God’s wisdom in this book – I do not take credit for any of it – to God be the glory!
PS. For those of you who are poetry lovers, my friend Maude Pych, an award winning poet, has another book recently released. “Behold the Lamb…poetically!“
BEHOLD THE LAMB…poetically! is a book of free verse, rhymes, and haiku about the Birth, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus. The poems have been inspired by Scripture as well as personal experiences and are perfect for reflection or to share with others, especially at Christmas, Lent and Eastertime.
