Carona virus hope

I see on tv that people are finding ways to give each other hope and band together during this crisis. I was especially caught by people putting out their Christmas decorations to help create an atmosphere of joy.

I think this is a wonderful example.

This is a time when each of us will begin to think of our life and our eventual death.

This is life, and we must learn to accept the fact that we will all die some day.

So now is the time to look toward our individual "faith". Where do you look when you are truly afraid?

I am 54, have compromised lung condition from my military service and currently in prison. If I catch CV-19 it is like 80% chance that I will die.

But I am okay with that. Are you?

25-years ago I prayed to "God Almighty, my creator"... at a time when I really didn't have any faith. Not knowing, or even expecting an answer. God did answer my prayers!

Through the next 30-days, every single day I meet someone, strangers even, that begin to give me words of joy, encouragement and hope about God's Love for me.

That's exactly what we celebrate on Christmas. The birth of God's great plan that He outlines in "His" Bible to give all of us hope and joy!

I learned 25-years ago that there is only one Name under heaven and on earth- Jesus (God Almighty) where we can find true peace in the face of death. Pray yourself and learn for yourself... God is always listening.

"Jesus" - English Name/ "Yeshua" - Hebrew Name

I hope you will seek comfort from God in this time of nationwide crisis.

May God bless you and America.

Thanks for writing! I finished the transcription for your post. I loved the way you mentioned that it is a testing time and we should pray to God. I believe in God but am not really religious. Yet whenever I am in distress, I feel myself calling out to Him and He immediately reaches back for me. He is my savior and help who never lets me down.

I would love to know more about you as I am new to this blog. I am ABTranscribes. Hoping to read more from you soon. Would love to transcribe it for you.

Take care and stay safe.

Until next time.
