Troubling Times

Be Strong, Be Well - Thursday, April 2


Good morning. Good day. It is my hope and prayer you all are well.

It was hard to hear the news of our governor’s executive order to stay at home for another month. It’s even harder to deal with the idea of not seeing our church brethren for that long. But it is what it is. Instead of complaining or grumbling about it, it’s always better to look outwardly than focus on ourselves.

This is true for the sake of our brethren (Philippians 2:3, 4) and for our elders who had to make another difficult decision (Hebrews 13:7, 17). It’s better to pass the time with a positive attitude, where we can be encouraging and uplifting for one another.

If we just take a moment or two, and consider our lives, no doubt we’ll be able to see some of the blessings we have been overlooking. The first one: we don’t have this terrible virus. Thank God for that!

In these troubling times, it’s good to take a step back and remember who we are. We are God’s children. And our Father says, “...be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." So we may boldly say: "The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?" (Hebrews 13:5b, 6).

Have a blessed day. —Chris
