142. Wanna Run Away from it All?

Are there times, especially during this pandemic, that you simply dream of being able to leave it all? Many of us have felt the desire to leave. When job losses are global, people are told to stay indoors and separate from others, media consistently reports increased deaths from the pandemic, fear and loneliness has entered in. How should you respond? What should you do?

You can respond in a few ways. You can choose to follow the media and share the panic many feel. You can also choose to become inquisitive and prayerfully proceed as you find reliable sources of information. Going forward with the news tells us all how many died and are sick. It forgets to tell how many survived and how many avoided the virus through healthy lifestyle choices. The facts are the coronavirus infected 38.9 million and killed a million. The media is proceeding with fear-mongering.

What does God say about it all? Matthew 24 talks about the friction; famines, pestilences, and earthquakes within the world. This, according to the bible, is the beginning of sorrows. In Luke, a similar discussion takes place about great signs from heaven. 2 Chronicles states "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." This is where the answer lies. It lies within us all and is within your choosing.
