Hope during #covid19

As Christians, how do we talk about the Corona virus and the pandemic we’re facing? Do we give in to fear? Do we run around aimlessly, feeling like life has no meaning and everything is doomed?

Or do we hold onto hope? Hope isn’t wishful thinking: it’s believing in something better, something greater. We have the greatest Hope in Jesus, and we KNOW that He is still at work, still in control.

Who can you share this hope with? How can you bring light to the darkness? Now is not the time to hide – now is your time to shine (insert spirit fingers).


God is with us #covid19

God is with us at all times, no matter where we are or what we are going through.

You may be apart from your loved ones, but God is right there with you: holding your hand, watching your back, waiting to talk. He says “Come to me and I will give you rest” Matthew 11:28. “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” James 4:8.

Take time with Him and find the comfort that He gives as you sit together. May you be drawn by His love, know Him deeper and rest in His presence.



A spirit of power, love and a sound mind #covid19

There’s a lot of fear in the world and possibly in your heart right now. We’re surrounded by so much uncertainty and so much information (some true, some lies). It can be overwhelming – right?

As followers of Jesus we have the Spirit of the Living God within us. “God did not give you a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7). This is currently written on our kitchen door. It’s a constant reminder that we mustn’t give in to fear but trust God to empower us so that we can be bringers of hope to those around us.


#StaySafe #covid19

“God bless” used to be the phrase that people said goodbye with. Now it’s become “Stay safe.”

That got me thinking about how we speak into people’s lives. What are the words you are using?

Speak well and speak life into people. Especially in these times where people can be full of despair and worry.

“Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” (Colossians 4:6).

Even when we are scared and unsure, we can ask God to give us life speaking words for those around us and ourselves.
