    Churchmouse, Thank you for your words of encouragement and great biblical insight as well. So very often I am nodding my head as I read what you have written. (I try to “reply” on my phone app to comment but for some reason it won’t work!) But anyway I do want to thank you and praise God for how He is using you for the growth of His daughters. Praying for your health in your physical (only) isolation!

    Thank you for your post Taylor! I spend a lot of time worrying… always! In some ways, I was taught that is how you love one another, by worrying. I’m praying that I trust God more and remember HE IS GOD and I am not. Also that I don’t pass this habit of worry to my kids who are almost adults now. I pray that there can be good family time during this season and that it is not filled with fear and anxiety, but peace.

    Spending this quiet Saturday morning reflecting on Day 24’s devotion and walking in daily obedience to God. One way I have been challenged to walk in daily obedience this week is to NOT FEAR. Man, do I love to worry, stress, and consume my thoughts with all the unknowns that have been thrown at me due to COVID-19. I forget who commented but I wrote in my journal for that day “Ordinary obedience: an awareness that God is near and that He provides. It’s an attitude of gratitude even when I’m not where I want to be.” Amen to that! Sisters, I challenge you (especially myself) to not fear because our God is near to us – His Spirit LIVES in us. He is FAITHFUL. I’ve also decided I’m going to start a gratitude journal and write down 3 things I’m thankful for from each day. It will cause me to reflect on the seemingly insignificant areas of my life during this time of isolation and open my eyes to see God’s work and provision even in this time where everything seems to have come to a halt. I just read last week’s Grace Day and Kara said “I don’t fear the forces of the world I fear HIM. And with that I have peace.” Praying peace over each one of you today <3

    Good morning, sisters. My youngest daughter is expecting her first baby. Her due date is next Thursday. Right now it doesn’t look like the hospital will be letting anyone in except her husband. My heart is really aching because I will not be able to be with her during this time. She’s a little stressed about it, too.
    Please pray for a safe delivery and a healthy baby. I told her that I would sit in the parking lot and her husband and I can tag team! I teach high school and we are out for the foreseeable future, so my husband and I will have plenty of time to be with this new grandbaby. My daughter’s name is Sara and her husband’s name is Will. As of right now they still have picked a name for the baby, so we’re calling him Baby Boy!
    Thank you for your prayers.

    I went from 3 jobs to 0 in less than a week and now there is a problem with the name on my unemployment that I cannot clear up until Monday. This devotion on Jeremiah is timely. I’m amazed that SRT had said I know it’s odd to study Jeremiah for lent and then it’s like the whole world started falling apart and all of a sudden it makes sense. For the most part I am at peace. I know God ALWAYS provides and I know the unemployment will get cleared up. Sharing some of your comments and this devotion with other people who need some sort of peace in this situation. God is good. This I know. In these times of uncertainty I’m so very thankful for Him and His promises. I had given up social media for lent as a way to draw closer to Him. It’s almost as if He said that’s not enough. Let me give you even more time to lean into me. To draw me in. What a mighty wonderful God we serve. Prayers and blessings to all of you wonderful amazing women.

    This time of forced isolation (I’m immunosuppressed so I’m inside my house for the duration except to go get my IV medication) has made me so grateful for the technology that makes it possible to stay connected to the family of God. I’m not a social media fan or of anything techy (I can barely copy and paste). I’m far more comfortable with pen and paper. But oh the joy of getting to know you all and praying for you though we are states and countries apart. This time has given me the opportunity to watch other churches’ services and teachings – what a blessing! What an encouragement that the church is alive and well and standing firm on the solid Rock, the hope we have in Christ. Folks are discovering creative ways of reaching out and staying connected. It’s wonderful. This prolonged downtime is becoming a deepening time. A time to indeed seek Him with all my heart and soul. To study more. To pray longer and more often. What a privilege this is! Let us take advantage of this time, though never expected and not desired at all. This time is a challenge to the church to be the church outside the building. Perhaps God is placing us out of our comfort zone to have us stop, check our priorities and refocus. What if this terrible virus results in tremendous revival? Friends, I am making note of every request you mention and I am committed to praying for each one. I can’t leave my house but I can freely enter the throne room of my Father’s house. In fact I’m settling in, quite “at home” there, sitting at His feet, listening to His voice, telling Him my concerns and the concerns of my worldwide friends. He knows you all. He loves us all. We are never alone. Let’s be the church, an army on our knees. For such a time as this.

      Beautifully said. Thank you for being such a Warrior and Woman of God. I enjoy and search out you post daily because they encourage me so much. Know that you are on my daily prayer list. May the Lord continue to bless you!

      Please pray for me during this time as we are in an apartment while we build. I am surrounded by boxes. I am grateful for the sale of our house and the opportunity to build a townhome in the community where we work and worship. Now we are shut in with this virus and I’m at a loss as to what to do.

    3. Cristina Higgins says:

      Thank you so very much Churchmouse for putting out such timely words. My son, Jason, has stage 4 kidney cancer that has metastasized to his lungs. I fear more for him than I do for any of the rest of my family. I know that if he comes down with this virus I will never see him on this side of heaven again. While this does give me peace ( He is much stronger than I am), my mother’s heart is still heavy with worry. Psalm 56:3 is sitting right in front of me; “Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in you.” God never fails to guide my heart, mind, and eyes toward what I need.

    4. Jennifer Anapol says:

      I will be praying for your health! I pray the Lord continues to bring you closer to his side.

      My hubby has CVID and does his infusions at home. My work is all work from home to further notice. I am so happy they let us do this and I wrote a thank you letter explaining hubby’s condition. We only have been out for prescription pick up. Thank you for you guidance in understanding these passages and helping us towards closer relationship with God. Thanks so much!

      Thankyou Churchmouse reading your posts comforts me and reminds me to keep my eyes forward on Jesus. Thankyou again

    Rebecca, I see it too in ways people are helping each other, sewing madka for our local hospitals, online concerts that are free, people crowd sourcing items and the list goes on. Much like 9/11 people are voming back together and I feel the vibrations of a revival. I pray it continues.
    This has been a great study for this very unique Lenten season

    Thank you for this perspective.
