Isaiah 26:3-4 “You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.”
I don’t know about you, but I feel the need to escape the constant onslaught of COVID19 information. I’m over this being the topic of conversation and media 24/7. I want to sit with friends and drink coffee (or tea) and talk about something else….anything else! I want to drive to the beach and enjoy the waves crashing on the beach. I want to go to church!!!!
With the constant broadcasting of information and conflict over COVID19 social or physical distancing, statistics of state by state cases and deaths, and whether to have partial or complete quarantining, I have to wonder if there is anything else going on in the world!!! Or is there something going on that we don’t know about.
At any rate, this morning I ran to scripture for encouragement and truth. And there it was, the best wisdom possible….God’s Word telling me to let my mind stay on Him. He is my everlasting rock. He is trustworthy. So simple, but so true.
I am choosing to take a step away from the constant blasting of pandemic information and to focus back on regular life. (Whatever that is right now). I will let my mind be on His Word and His character. I will let other things occupy my thoughts other than the uncertainty that is shaking our country.
Wherever you are right now, whatever you are doing, take a deep breath. Read these words in Isaiah written way before 2020, but so applicable for us to cling to right now. Allow His perfect peace to wash over you and spread through your spirit like a warm blanket. Snuggle up in it and enjoy some time with Him.
