Forced to Slow Down

If this season of COVID-19 has done nothing more for us than to teach us to slow down, it has been good.  Our lives of busyness were forced to slow down.  The first month was tough.  Something we have never experienced.  The following seven months have slowed us all down to where I feel God wants us.  I believe that this time has given us more avenues to “seek His face”.  Prayer time has become more alive.  Reading God’s Word is more vibrant.  As we age, we feel time going faster and faster with no off ramps. In this time of slowing down I challenge you to be more obvious when speaking about your Savior to others.  Be bolder about doing godly deeds.  The feeling you get from these acts is not prideful but of selflessness from God.  Romans 12:9-13 sums it up for me.  “Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.  Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.  Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.  Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.  Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
