Anxieties 709281642530753

The Coronavirus has caused us to be locked in our homes and can only go outdoors for essentials. There are many people I assume that must be feeling the strains both mentally and physically.

Unfortunately, we do not know when the Governments are going to release us from this isolation, and therefore we must have something to keep our courage and strength.

The Bible verses below should hopefully increase your patience, tolerance and strength.

Psalm 46:1-3 God, is our refuge and strength a very present help in trouble.

Proverbs 18:10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it and is safe.

Nehemiah 8:10 Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength.

Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Exodus 15:2 The Lord is my strength and song, and he becomes my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him a habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him.

Deuteronomy 31:8 And the Lord, it is he that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.

Understandably, after weeks of being lockdown, we give in to worry, fear and despair, but with God, we can find strength and look forward to beautiful things. He gives us hope so that we can face tomorrow with a renewed faith, trust and a future full of hope.
