So amid the COVID-19 pandemic everyone has a viewpoint or some sort of theory of what's going on and more importantly how to solve the problem. I've heard and seen it all. My personal opinion is that I'll continue to use common sense while trusting God every step of the way. That's how I've always done this thing called life and COVID-19 doesn't change that. The only difference today is that I'm doing it respectfully from the comfort of my home. In hopes of saving lives.
But what I'm offering you today regardless, whether you accept my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ or not. (Which by the way I hope you will) is the variable called perspective. I'm a firm believer that often times its a simple shift in perspective that changes the entire trajectory of our lives forever.
Let me demonstrate what this might look like in the midst of a global pandemic. Instead of us seeing this as some sort of cruel and unusual punishment of sorts. Perhaps we change our perspective and try to see it as a way of God giving us an opportunity to rest and relax; catch up on some things; get better acquainted with friends or family; sharpen a skill set; etc. Or better still, instead of us posting a million conspiracy theory videos/links on our social media platform's how about we post a prayer on our timelines for those that we believe may have some sort of hidden agenda. By no means am I saying change what you believe because everyone has their own opinions and convictions and who am I to try and change that?
What I'm simply trying to convey is that our perspective on things can either be a really good RX to help us get through these trying times. Or it can be the worst thing ever and it only makes the symptoms of this pandemic greater. Me personally, I'm leaning on the RX of the "GREAT PHYSICIAN"Jesus Christ to carry me through. But I get it not everyone will share this same view point and that's perfectly fine. So the next best variable I can offer you is a change of perspective. I really and truly believe that it'll change your life for the better. Not only in the midst of COVID-19 but for years and years to come.
As you go forward in your daily journey I extend love & peace to each of you. I pray that you find your "it" and that you OWN IT. That the chains of this world be broken off of you & that you walk in the light that God intended you to walk in.
With dedication & servitude
