How are you holding up?

I didn’t think Wednesday would come to and end! For me, that has been the longest day of Coronavirus season. My flight in May to NYC was cancelled, we were waiting what seemed like an eternity for the president’s address and I was thinking over time about our employees, our business and how we are going to operate with businesses closing down everywhere. For the most part, I had been calm and level headed but on Wednesday I got done in with anxiety and an intense desire that we all share at this point – to wake up from this nightmare.

Wednesday evening, I sat on my bed with no strength to pray. I felt like everything I had to pray about I had already prayed about and I couldn’t get myself to talk to God. My faith is the only thing I can confidently bank on, and yet here I was not being able to pray. I sat there for a while and then decided to sing myself out of the anxiety.
‘Lord, you’ll never forsake me…’ and as I sang those words out loud, I started to feel peace return to my body.

Yes, we aren’t guaranteed eternity on this earth. We all must leave at one point and that’s not comforting at all but the truth shall set you free.

I asked God at the start of the year (when I realised that I am about to hit 30 soon) to teach me to number my days and give me a heart of wisdom (Psalm 90:12) and a steady urgency to live out my purpose on earth.

Therefore, I decided to write that book (I’ll tell your all about it later), I decided to wear the fancy shoes, light up the fancy candle, watch less tv during the week and read as much as I can, or just use that time to pray and have conversations with my husband. Intentionally spend quality time with my friends and be present for them.

We don’t always have to wait for life changing situations to start living our lives, or to remind us how little time we have on this earth.
Therefore, should you find yourself on lockdown, don’t think of the worst, think of how best you can use this time. The noise has lessened, time seems to move slower and there’s always something to be grateful for no matter how small.

If you need to calm the anxiety you feel, here are some bible verses that will put you to rest. Read them out as often as you want until your heart feels at peace.

Deuteronomy 31:8 “He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

Isaiah 43:1 “Don’t fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine.”

Psalm 18:2 “The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer.”

Let’s continue to pray for our world, let’s pray for those who are grieving, let’s pray for those who have lost their jobs, let’s pray for sustenance, let’s pray for compassion.

Ps. Please check around your local community and find ways to help people who don’t have food and essentials, if we find that information let’s share it with each other and join hands to help wherever we can.

Stay safe, stay prayed up and may God heal our world.

  1. This indeed comes at the perfect time..for me, for all the others around the world. Thank you for the guide. It is a time to be still…we run around all the time afraid the world is leaving us but, we should certainly remember we are all here for just a while and when He calls us, we will leave to a much much better place filled with peace. So, what we should be doing now is working on getting closer to Him, leave the busy schedules, the plans, the dreams…..for a while, be still and know He is Lord. He knows all the plans He has for us and only good plans.

    1. Be still. I love that. Stillness is always so hard to achieve but yes we need to be still and Know that God is in control.

  2. Thank you for sharing. I’ve really
    been having trouble overcoming my anxiety with how very uncertain this situation all seems.

    1. I know how you feel, and take comfort in this thought that there’s lots of us going through it. We just have to remind ourselves to breathe, to pray and to take it a day at a time. And, if you need to unplug for a day do it for your mental well being, the world is really loud on the internet right now.
