Are we in a viral war? Have you noticed how people are using humor to deal with the Covid-19 Pandemic? Pinterest is full of funny and thought provoking memes. One states, “Your grandparents were called to war. You’re called to sit on your couch. You can do this.” A television commercial salutes all our front-line workers and all the “Couch Potatriates.”
Should we compare a pandemic to war? How you answer will depend on your personal situation. While many of us may not be dealing directly with the virus, we are in a war of mind-set and perspective. Our lives disrupted overnight. How are you coping in this viral war? Do you unplug from the news, use humor, sing, dance, play music, exercise, or pray?
Do you ask, where is God, or do you see God at work? Tim Challies, a popular blogger (challies.com) asked for encouragement from his readers. He received many stories from around the world providing evidence of God’s work.
Keep yourself encouraged with God, and sprinkle in a little fun. He is there to help us through whatever comes. Be calm and carry on!
1 Peter 1:8, Living Bible: “You love him even though you have never seen him; though not seeing him, you trust him; and even now you are happy with the inexpressible joy that comes from heaven itself.”
