down, or discouraged I realize I have not been spending enough time in God's word. I need to focus on Him instead of myself which means I need to know more about Him and how He handles situations such as we are experiencing today. It so easy to become focused on all the issues in the world but I keep asking myself, how would Jesus have walked among everyone and everything going on today. I have come to realize that Jesus did not stand for cause but He stood for truth. He stood on God's word and nothing else.
If you feel alone or discouraged during this pandemic time who do you turn to for hope, conversation, information, companionship? I have decided that I will keep my focus on God's truth and not the worlds. I find an extreme amount of peace in this decision. It' keeps me focused on what is truly important to me which is sharing how much He cares and loves me despite all my flaws. Focusing on God's truths helps me to keep my priorities in line and brings complete order to my day. It puts into focus what is important in a very simple and beautiful way. It calms my heart, shows me how I can best be involved and ensures I am walking in His will. I shows me what angers me and causes me to react in a way that is pleasing to Him. There are so many emotions being shared during this time and I too am concerned with all that is transpiring. But to be effective in the ways I feel led to be involved, I must know that I am grounding myself in His word Then and only then can I feel I am contributing in a Godly way and not of my own volition.
How is God leading you to be involved? It's important that our involvement lift God up and not ourselves. It's important that we, as believers not become splintered or divided in our attempts to help.
During this time of quarantine I have been creating verse cards. These cards have helped me to stay focused on His word while having some wonderful time in my studio just creating. Moving forward I will be sharing some of these cards in this blog along with my thoughts as I was creating them. It's amazing how calming and inspiring this time has been for me. I know it's because I have worked to stay focused on Him instead of myself. It's been a real blessing.
