A Place We Have Never Been Before

We are experiencing now in our lifetime, a place we have never been to before. We are dealing with Social Distancing, a very contagious Coronavirus, worldwide economic concerns, even a shortage of toilet paper all at the same time. We are in unfamiliar territory that is different in so many ways.

When we go to strange places we have never been to before it can make us feel…

Lonely…

Different…

Out of Place..

Weird…

and Wondering What is Next?

Just like the old saying we need to “Get Our Bearings”, in other words we need to take some time figuring out how to deal with our present circumstances. Daniel Boone, was a famous pioneer who spent most of his life exploring and going to unknown places. He was asked once did he ever get lost. He replied: “I can’t say as ever I was lost, but I was bewildered ( confused) once for three days.” I think we call all identify with that, these are also confusing and disorienting days for us too. So it is important for us to “Get our Bearings” as best we can each day to navigate through these crazy times. Here are some ideas I have been thinking about that can help you and me…

STOP and THINK about ways to take the precautions necessary for proper care of yourself and others.

FOCUS on what you can do Today, not just be obsessed about what you can not do right now. Maybe tackle some little home projects you have not had the time to do for a while. Call, email, or text friends and family to check and see how they are doing right now.

STAY informed with the latest updated information but also Keep your Faith updated. This is a time to seek and trust in the Lord by spending some time to pray particularity those infected and effected by this horrible virus and also for the medical and emergency services personnel and other people that working during this crisis to help people. This is also a time for us to be reading and listening to things that will help our faith grow. Dr. Charles Stanley has said “There is only one secure foundation: a genuine, deep relationship with Jesus Christ, which will carry you through any and all turmoil. No matter what storms may be raging all around, you will stand firm if you stand firm on His love.”

I have never been to Hyder, Alaska but someday I may get to go there. One thing is for sure, We all look forward to leaving Coronavirusville…

I will be praying for you and please be praying for me too. Thanks, JBH
