1. Embrace the moment—It is time for self-quarantine. The COVID-19 season is a mandatory rest to go into seclusion. It is a time to reflect and communion with life. Utilize the time to relax (It is time to refresh and reset your life button).
Rom 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
2. Redeem and maximize the season.
It is not just a time to rest but also a time to grow, both spiritually and mentally, also invest in your family time and grow together. Be intentional about your rest, but you need to learn as you go and grow as you go. Do something for yourself; add value. It is called personal development.
Eph 5:16, “making the most of every opportunity….”
3. Show Love
Intentional and deliberate thinking will always open up to the unknown and unseen world. Right now, someone is crying and grieving because they have lost their love ones to the COVID-19. If you cannot give huge, you can call. If you can visit, you can send a text: Anyhow and somehow, show some love. Love is the answer to the significant difficulties in life. Whenever love becomes your priority, living well will become the order of the day. There is are two laws that I called the law of attraction and refusal. The law of refusal states, you can reject what you don’t want if you help those who are challenged by it. While the law of attraction states, you can invite what you don’t want if you ignore those who are challenged by it.
Ecc. 7:2-, “It is better to go to the house of mourning than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men, and the living will lay it to his heart. Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance, the heart is made better.”
1John 4:8, “Whoever does not love does not know God,
because God is love.”
4. Follow your leaders, directives.
You don’t need to be a doctor to help; all you need to do is to listen and obey. You can contribute to combating this pandemic if only you can follow the directive of the leaders and the medical practitioners’ bodies. (WHO-World Health Organization and CDC-Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). If you don’t listen and obey, you will create more damage than you can imagine. Some people are working round the clock; you can encourage them by following orders. The easiest way not to create disorderliness is to follow simple instructions.
Rom 13:1, “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.”
5. Take Care of Yourself (Living healthy lifestyle). To remain useful, you have to keep living useful. Activity is the mother of usefulness.
Exercise at home. Remember, “bodily exercise profit little…”(1 Tim 4:8).
1 Cor 6:19-20, “What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore, glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
…be inspired, live an abundant life, and help others.
