This week has flown by and we have been drawing near to God to be at peace in the midst of chaos all around us!
On my Facebook page, I have sought to share verses with breath prayers to help people dealing with all of the uncertainties of life going on globally as well as songs to encourage faith in the midst of trouble. Breath prayers to remember to meditate on during the day.
I thought I would share some of them here with you to pass on to the people you are discipling.
Many of the psalms bring great comfort in the midst of these trying times:
Today I shared psalm 73:28:
But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds. Breath prayer: You are my refuge!
Yesterday I shared psalm 71:14:
As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
Breath prayer: Thanks for giving me hope!
Monday, I found this verse to hold on to in Psalm 57:1:
Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge.
I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.
Breath prayer: Have mercy on me!
I also shared some songs to build up our faith!
I encourage you to use social media to help bring people peace these days. Pray for your Facebook and Instagram friends. Respond to their needs if possible. Show kindness to your neighbors. We are all in this together. Look out for each other and share helpful insights. Keep in touch with people that are isolated. Encourage one another.
Be prepared to be at home for awhile. But ask God how you can bless others even at home? What encouraging messages can you send to people you know?
Corrie ten boom said, “Worry doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrows, it empties today of its strength.” So, let’s keep letting our lights shine to our neighbors and those in obvious need. Pay attention especially to older people you know who may need some help.
