In the Quietness of Quarantine

Is this a reflection time for you in stressingful. Do you feel you in this alone. Nobody want help you not even the government you about to loose or have lost everything. So many times we focus on the problem that the answer. Every situation that happens in your life is for a reason. Nobody has time to get down out their of they are constantly working etc. you can't even take a breathe. Cause your so busy.

Of ten times people say to inmates who are locked up. It's harder out here. You don't have no bills, etc. the list goes on and on. Honey you put yourself their. Rationalization of your situation but not really knowing what the family member or inmate going through. I tell people all the time. You can't rationalize no one situation because you don't know everything about what is happening to them.

As the COV-19 raging like the wild wild west. It's affect the prisons as well tremendously. Just as every second a person is found positive so as a inmate. I am going, some where with this. When we go to medical guess what we have fees as well. We got to eat. So if our families has a loot everything. The inmates struggle as well in many ways.

We to are quarantine sometimes longer than the 14 days. While you are quarantine, what you going to do? For me it has been a reflection time to see what I need to change and pray. Cause if your as change you love more, God provide for you and no matter what bad circumstance you will have peace on the inside knowing that the lord will work it out. I was studying on quietness in my study bible. I had such as peace come over time. My spirit said share this with your viewers.

Pslam 23:2,3
He makes me lie down in green pastures
He leads me beside quiet waters
He restores my soul
He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake

Study note: When we allow God our shepherd to guide us, we have contentment. When we choose to sin, however we go our own way and cannot blame God for the environment we create for ourselves. Our shepherd knows the "green pastures and quiet waters that will restore us. We will reach these places only by following him obediently. Rebelling against the shepherd & leading is actually rebelling against our own best interests. We must remember tho the next time we are tempted to go our own way rather than the shepherd's way.

I am speaking to crowd that are suffering economically. The unemployment rate should not be where it is because their are jobs out you got to have faith and go out in get the job. Even if it's not what your use to doing. It's pay check. You have to start somewhere. Some is better than none. I want to encourage you with my story. My oldest son was unemployed. He was getting unemployment checks. He got the first stimulus check. Then everything got locked up in the government. He stood a chance being out the dov with his four boys and pregnant fiancee. As a mother my job is to pray.
1 Peter 2:7 Humble yourselves, therefore under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. My son needed money. He needed it now. All of certain he got a lump sum. They paid their rent up for a year. Suddenly my son got a job driving semi truck $200 a day and $1200 a week. The baby son was unemployed in the same situation. Now he has a job at a factory driving fork lift. My daughter is a PreK teacher. God is in controll your life. Ask him for what you need, Republicans will fail you everytime. But God will not. So trust him and pray and step out on faith. Be encouraged. God can change your situation to. God Bless
