Today as I look around in the world there’s so many aspects that are just not familiar to me. You hear over and over again “it’s the new normal”. Between the global pandemic, stay at home orders to stop the spread, businesses closing, millions of American’s unemployed, an ever-changing stream of information that has turned out to be mostly inaccurate, and demonstrations to re-open our country, I really thought it couldn’t get much worse. And I most definitely did not want to accept this as NORMAL! And just when you think it can’t get worse….an unnecessary, unbelievable death and now RIOTS across our country. I’m over this new normal!
All the talk about what is and isn’t essential…the bitterness and boldness of people to judge others, verbally with condemnation and vicious words. I’m perplexed by the hate that is spoken. I feel like Jesus is the answer, actually I know Jesus is the answer! Jesus is essential!
Jesus is the essential puzzle piece to solving the hate, fear and anger in the world today. Finding Jesus changes people, and people changing to a softer, kinder, more understanding human is the answer to many a problem. .
Take me away
I’m probably dating myself here, but there was an old commercial for a bath soak product that supposedly took all the stress of the day away. (wouldn’t that be great?) In the commercial, you’re home bathroom became a beautiful beach with a beautiful sunset and there you were soaking in the tub on the beach…no longer in your current stressful situation. And the saying..Calgon take me away.
Well…I’ve been changing the slogan a bit, to “Jesus, take me away”. I’ve found that the only thing that helps me to keep my head grounded is spending time with Jesus. Activities like reading my bible, reading Christian literature and prayer help me to realize that this will not by my new normal.
The reasons behind the design of this new Jesus is essential shirt for women (men’s version arriving soon) are on my heart daily and the shirt is on special this month of June 2020 because this message needs to be splattered everywhere!
2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Please remember to keep our country in your prayers.
