In times of physical isolation like we are currently in, let’s make sure that we stay connected in other ways. God created us to have interaction with one another. No one is an island unto himself, or at least shouldn’t be. We need fellowship and community in order to thrive. I want to give you 3 ways to stay connected to your church family and refresh your spiritual health.
——Dust off your social media skills to watch the online church services.
Watch GraceLife Facebook live @gracelifechurchoflincoln every Sunday 10am and Wednesday at 7pm until we can safely gather again. If you struggle to connect online to the live streaming services, ask a younger person to help you. We all need spiritual food and encouragement from God’s Word. Don’t let your inability to navigate the internet stop you. Someone will be more than willing to help you. Cindi and I will also give updates and announcements that are important for you to hear regarding church life. (You also have the option to click on the link and watch it anytime after it is posted.)
——Reach out to each other thru today’s communication venues.
Call and talk to someone that God puts on your mind or heart. Send an encouraging text message to a friend who you think might be struggling in some way. Get creative with your communication abilities and strengthen one another in the Lord. Maybe send, speak, or write a scripture to whomever you have on your heart. People need to hear from you and you need to hear from them. Start the trend of encouragement and see what God does with it.
——Finally, take time to personally rejoice in the Lord and feed on His Word and faithfulness.
Don’t allow the fray of uncertainty to enter your heart. Jesus said, “let not your heart be troubled. You trust in God, trust also in me”. We trust in Him by praising Him at every opportunity and meditating on His promises that are very certain and unmovable. Receive His love and grace daily. Jesus paid a great price for your well being, spiritually, physically, and financially. Say the YES and AMEN, stay strong in the Lord!
