What if This Quarantine Could Change Your Life? ~ by Amy Vest Cox

I have a question - What if this quarantine could change your life?
Get this – Jesus is with you, He is working, and He has a plan in all of this! If you will seek the Lord for His plan and lean into what He has for you in this time, He will do amazing things!
“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”  Romans 8:28

I want you to encourage you to embrace these 3 things in this social isolation time:

1. Personal time with Jesus - 
 What matters more than anything is your own personal relationship with Jesus through faith in Him – walking with Him in a real way, like you do with a friend. I want to encourage you to spend personal time in His presence reading His Word to you, sharing your heart with Him in prayer, and writing down what He is showing you. This is a special opportunity to grow closer to Him.
 “You have said, “seek my face.” My heart says to you, “Your face, O Lord, I will seek.”’  Psalm 27:8

2. Strengthening your soul - 
 This is an amazing time to be filling your heart and mind with things that will strengthen your soul. Ask yourself, “What will help me know Jesus more?” and go for it! This can be, of course, time in the Bible – as well as listening to messages about Jesus, reading books that encourage you in Him, worshipping to music, or calling a friend to encourage each other in the Lord! 
 “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…”  2 Peter 3:18

3. Serving others - 
You have a unique opportunity to serve others in this time. Asking the Lord where He wants you to serve Him and letting Him guide you with result in exciting things! This can be texting others to encourage them, helping your family member with something, etc. The Lord will use you in your unique mission field in this time!
 “And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”’  Matthew 25:40
I am excited for what the Lord will do in you! You can come out of this time stronger, more in love with Jesus, and having seen Him work more than before you entered into it!
