So today I think the quarantine started to really hit me. Homelife had been pretty adequate, to say the least obviously just relaxing for the most part. Doing some school work, eating, gaming, sleeping, the usual teenage antics I suppose. But then today it really hit me. I just felt truly alone. Nowhere to go no one to talk to, I just overall didn’t feel right, and at first, I tried texting some friends but even then I felt alone.
So in this feeling, I went to the one place that has always helped me in the past, my trusty bible. Usually, I have a certain verse of story or book in mind that I know can give guidance but today I had no ideas so I did what any logical person would do and I put it in Gods hands and opened to a random page now the page I opened to happen to be Isaiah 41:10.
Now you can look it up yourself if you want but I’m gonna tell you what it says, it says, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand”. Now I don’t know about y’all but when I read that, in that moment I felt something in my heart and soul so right then and there I prayed for guidance and wisdom.
After that I felt better I started to get back in the groove of the day and get back to doing what I do best which is chillin for those who don’t know me. So yea long story short I know that while we’re in the quarantine we can’t exactly go out with friends or do much else but trust me when I tell you it could be a lot worse and we should take the free time we have even if it’s just a minute between class assignments to thank God for keeping us safe and pray that we can find a solution to this virus.
Also, pray for your friends and family who know people who are sick. But above all else remember that at the end of the day God has our backs and he’ll help us get through this along with anything else you may be going through.
Thank you! God is with us always. Let’s continue to fight this battle on our knees, through prayer.
