Checking In



Well hello there friends and family.. I hope you're all well and healthy.
I haven't written in my Corona Diaries series in a while and thought I'd check in and share some thoughts and opinions. If you're the 'sensitive' type you may want to skip this post. Those of you who have followed me on my social media platforms know I don't pull any punches and I speak what's on my mind. I am not from the "politically correct' era and I never will be. So having said that, let's move on..

My first question is, how are you all doing?

As for me and mine, we are .....doing... In the beginning of all this I was like most were and sadly some still are. Scared, wiping down everything, staying home as much as possible and in general freaking out.. Then...things changed for me...

What changed? My spirit, my emotions, my thoughts.. I stopped freaking out.. I turned to the Lord and now I can share with you. Here is how I am looking at this virus itself. Most of you know that my doctors are almost positive I had this virus in January which lasted until approximately mid March. I can also tell you that yes, it exists and kills people. I can tell you that I was so sick I thought I would be one of those people. I can tell you I had my husband get my life insurance out just in case. That, is how sick I was. If you would like to me to tell you about my experience with this let me know in the comments and I will make a post about it..

Here's what I also know. No one can tell us if we can be infected again and no one can tell us when we will die or what we will die of. And that there is my whole point of this post. 

Many months ago I gave all my anxieties and fears over to the Lord. I handed my life over to him completely. Every single area of my life I gave to Him. In return he helped me to understand that even before this virus my life has always been in his hands from the moment I was created. He knows when and what I will die from. As humans we all think we have control over everything when in reality we don't have control over much of anything. 

So how I live each day is, I don't worry. I pray each morning to keep my loved ones and myself safe.. I take some, precautions and I live my day knowing that no matter what happens in this life, the Lord will be there to see me through whether that means in this life or He decides to lead me to the next. Now does that mean I want to die? Of course it doesn't... What it does mean is I trust Him completely and depend on Him for everything. He is in control. Anxiety and fear do not come from God. Once we learn to let things go that we have absolutely no control over and trust Him with everything we are free and so I am free. Does that mean I do not have some concern for my loved ones and myself? Of course it doesn't but knowing He is there and handles everything brings great peace and freedom. 

I watch people run around in a panic since this began, scolding others for what "they think" is correct, worrying about every, single, little thing and I realize they live like this because they have no faith. You can't possibly have faith and still live like this and so I pity them and pray for them...

  1. This is a great post. I love hearing of people trusting to the Lord. I lose faith a lot of times but I know who holds the answers. If more people would turn to Jesus in times like this, the world would be such a better place. Have a wonderful day.

    1. Hi Lisa,
      I think all of us struggle with faith at times and God knows this so all we have to do is ask for His help and He will help us..and I agree. The world would be a better place, sadly these days many are turning away which is why we have the evil we have.. Its tragic... Thank you so much for coming over Lisa :) XO

    2. Good Day everyone, just want to share my experience here so you all should be more careful when contacting any herbalist for solution cos majority of the testimonies are fake and were the ones that fooled me.they all uses the same local code number (+234) cos i have been screwed by some of them.My Husband was suffering from Hsv for years and i went everywhere to get useful information that will help cure or suppress the disease.then i came across testimonies of those that took my hard earn money without any useful information or cure but they keep telling stories.about two months ago, a new staff was employed in my place of work and when He heard about my Husband Disease He was so remorseful and told me about Dr Emmanuel.but i felt it was still one of those Internet guys so i didn't call or text Dr Emmanuel. later that week, He asked me if i`ve heard from Dr Emmanuel and he gave me proof and reasons to try.well, lots of thanks to Dr Emmanuel cos as im writing this message, my Husband is CURED through the herbs that Dr Emmanuel sent to us.so after my experience, i decided to save some people from falling to the hands of SCAMS.thx for your time and if you require the service of Dr Emmanuel, you have to reach him via email: nativehealthclinic@gmail.com  or WhatsApp/Call +2348140073965

  2. I mostly use common sense with a few precautions. My kids look after me a lot though, so I don't stand much of a chance of getting the virus. I'm blessed. Enjoy your day, hugs, Edna B.

  4. Dear Sweet Robyn we are so on the same page. I no not live in fear, but I don't have my head in the san either. I know God is in control. And I know it's appointed that we will all die, and then the judgement. How wonderful to know I don't have to face that judgement, because Jesus paid my penalty on the Cross. Living every day expecting His return, and praying to be transformed daily more into His image. Love your heart and attitude.

    1. Hi Wanda,
      I am in good company then!...Yes I am the same way, don't live in fear but don't bury your head in the sand.. The Lord tells us to be watchful as well...Honestly, I don't know how people get through this life without believing.. I can't even imagine my life with the Lord. It seems an impossibility to me.. God bless you Wanda and thank you for coming by today :) XO

  5. I agree with you - God doesn't want us fretting and worrying about our lives and situations. We give it to Him and we TRUST.

  6. Thank you for expressing exactly what I've been shouting at the computer (no satellite TV here, cancelled it). My husband and I have chosen to follow the LORD too. We've both had that nasty mess anyway, back in late Fall. I thought I was gonna cough my lungs out. *lol* God is good and let us survive it. Most of the folks in our 500+ congregation had it too, back then, and on into Spring. Nobody died. We've lost more loved ones to cancer, the flu, accidents, couple of suicides, etc.
    Anyway, love your blog. Thank you for choosing faith over fear and telling everyone about it. We need to all be this bold for Christ.
    Yours In Christ, Pamela
