I’ve been thinking of this hype. I avoid my friends, not because the CDC recommends it, but because many have been the criers, “Prepare!! Prepare!!” They speak of worldly preparations. It’s good to prepare, but the energy behind it is unsettling, ridden with anxiety. The world has too much of that already.
So… I keep my distance so that I don’t take on that energy. What they don’t realize is that I have been long prepared in ways they do not know… I speak of our spiritual preparations. I suppose that is a fault of mine that they don’t know the depths of my relationship with God. Oh yes, they know the surface, but not the daily walk and intimate conversations. It enables me to have a profound peace and complete trust in Him.
I thought this morning: If we look at it from a Traditional Chinese Medical viewpoint (or Taoist view)… it is a virus affecting the lungs…. our “taking in.”
So I ask myself “Am I taking in… the spirit of God and Christ or… the virus?”
Peace, Love, and Trust be with you today and every day!
