Principles for a Successful Marriage

“Seven Coronavirus Survival Skills”

 

I know we have bought more of these products than we have ever bought before.  So much so, that the stores are sold out!  Everyone is trying to survive!  Originally this was all we thought we needed to help protect us.  As we learn more about the Coronavirus, reports are saying that these items are helpful but they don’t prevent you from getting the virus.  Surviving this season will take more than having these products.  There are some things that we need to do mentally, physically and spiritually.  Here are Seven Survival Skills that I want to encourage you practice.

  1. Savior Start your day by seeking God first. Spend regular time in prayer, praise and worship. Draw closer to God like never before.  Pray about every concern.  God will give you peace in the midst of everything.  (James 4:8 and Matthew 6:33)
  2. Scripture – Study Scripture by reading and meditating on God’s Word daily. Focus on the promises of God.  (I Peter 2:2)
  3. Self Care & Safety Take time to nurture you.  Eat, exercise and do what you need to do to nourish yourself. Follow the safety guidelines being given about COVID-19 (I Corinthians 3:16)
  4. ServeTo serve is to be useful, to work or to help.  Work from home, help family members, friends and neighbors (especially seniors) Allow God to use you.(Colossians 3:23)
  5. Share Ask God who He wants you to share with.  Look for opportunities to share what you have. (Ephesians 2:10)
  6. Sister/brotherhoodCheck on each other.  Stay connected, make phone calls, send a text or email. (John 3:16-18)
  7. Stay SavedWalk in obedience to God.  Apply His Word to your life, do His will and follow His way.  Do the righteous thing.  (Psalm 119:9)

Let’s keep putting these skills into practice!  The Coronavirus is not a surprise to God.  In spite of how things may look, God is in control.  Be encouraged and fear not!  You are a survivor! Special thanks to God for keeping us in the midst of it all.  Also, thanks to all of the first responders who are literally helping people to survive.  Blessings to you and your families.

Until next week . . .
