ReFocusing COVID-19

During this Covid-19 scare, many live in Fear. As a Christian we need to remember that scripture says 365 times ‘Do Not Fear”. One for each day of the year. Often our first response is to go into fear. We do not have our true worth and identity in Christ which gives us true peace. We need to become disciples, which mean learning and growing in Christ. God wanted a family and a relationship. It takes 2 to develop a relationship. That is for another time.

For now we need to refocus. Instead of thinking on on the negative and problems. Think on solutions and positive. Philippians 4:8 Whatsoever is of good report, lovely, wholesome, Pure, Think on these things.

Stop listening to all the news, reading popups on your phone and others that are negative, doom and gloom. Refuse to watch and listen to those doom Sayers and know this too shall pass. Instead of thinking what you can’t do while in self imposed quarantine, think of what you can do.

All those things you’ve been putting off around the house to do or fix.

Deep cleaning like under your sinks or cleaning out your closet and food pantry.

Organize the drawers of your dresser and linen closet.

Mending clothes, cleaning your shoes and boots.

Washing your slippers and Robes.

Fixing broken things around the house or out in the yard.

Planting a flower garden or vegetable garden

Cleaning out the paper clutter or book case

Trying new recipes or grilling outside more.

Painting that room or porch you’ve been wanting to for years now.

Read that book or write that book you’ve been wanting to.

Learn a new accent or language.

Take a course on Line.

Learn a new game.

Exercise to a DVD or cable program, walk, ride your bike

What have you always wanted to do? Make a list. Then label the list A, B,C.

This is even more important if you are isolated alone. When it is only you in the house. If your too tired to focus on a project or reading, then watch a comedy. Something to make you laugh, not fear causing or depressing.

Look forward with a positive attitude. Listen to uplifting music. And Refuse to listen to negative people.
