We are all in this together. Is that really true? Are we all in this together? Are we all on the same page? Do we all agree? NO.
Every day I work with people helping them to find their way through the chaos around us. They suffer terribly from anxiety, stress and depression.
Is it really any wonder why?
We are all being constantly indocrinated to be afraid. Over the last year the rhetoric of fear has been amped up like never before except maybe during World War II.
Fear and division seems to be all powerful. It’s not.
There is so much going on we have no control over, politically or socially. It’s not surprising so many are feeling so powerless, hopeless and trapped.
The only thing most of us have in common is that we all feel the same way. At different levels of course, but generally the same.
Most of us are sick and tired of the constant fear mongering, lockdowns and governmental regulations.
Two weeks to flatten the curve has turned into a year of mandates, regulations, political gamesmanship and disinformation.
With so much out of our control where does our power come from? I suggest it comes for your power to choose. I am in control of my own behaviour. No matter what is going on, I like to focus on what I do control. For example I chose to censor Facebook and Instagram.
In reading my devotional this morning, I was reminded to not become distrated by the world. In every way to focus my attention on Jesus. The message I have been receiving the last several days is to focus on HIM, trust HIM. One day at a time. One step at a time. A renewed mind is a presence focussed mind. I am seeking more and more His voice, His light.
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.Romans 12:2
