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.



Not about you #covid19

In times like these, we often become inward looking, focusing on our own needs and what is best for ME, without thinking about others. But the lockdown isn’t just about you – it’s about everyone.

Paul challenged the Philippians to look not only to their own interests, but also to the interest of others (Philippians 2:4) and gives an example of Timothy’s genuine concern for others (2:20-28). They were inspired by God’s love to care about others.

Ask God for that same concern, that opens your eyes to what you can do for others. And remember: Stay at home!


#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.
