Stay Positive and Beat the Odds

Stay Positive and Beat the Odds By Gertrude Flynn-White -March 10, 2020

The outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is spreading across the world like wild fire, causing much anxiety. The crisis continues to unfold as churches, schools, universities, business places, etc are closed.

There is panick in the economy as the stock market plunges, uncertainty rocks the justice system, consumers become fearful as they shop for food and other basic necessities and the health system is racing to find a cure.

In spite of this we must keep calm and move forward. Life imposes unforeseen circumstances on us that we may not be able to control but we can control how we will go through them.

Let us read the signs of the time as mentioned in 2 Timothy 3:1-5 (KJV), “
“This I know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come….”

We may find it difficult to control COVID-19 but God can. 2 Chronicles 7:14 reminds us, “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.”

Our health is the greatest gift and we have a responsibility to preserve it by implementing the necessary preventative measures. Look out for the symptoms, follow direction, and stay safe.

Let us build our #faith, and #trust God to bring us through this. May Almighty God heal, protect and guide our people.
