Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are just, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy — meditate on these things. – Phil. 4:8
I have been meditating a lot lately.
I remember my meditation instructor, Coleen Camenisch, saying that meditation is like a gatekeeper. It observes the thoughts passing but doesn’t let them in.
The COVID-19 virus pandemic has caused closures that I have never seen in my lifetime. It is scary, but Jesus asks us not to be afraid.
He asks us to seek the truth. He asks us to look at the good reports, not just the bad ones. He wants us to be peaceful. So even though the times may be scary and other people may be in a panic, we have a savior who has already overcome the world and who can save us.
He will give us perfect peace. No matter what is going on and no matter how many businesses close, Jesus will renew us and He will come for us. Amen.
