Tip: Beware of scams! Christians want to help those in need, but be sure you know the organization is legitimate before you give personal information or donations. It is safer and more secure for you to contact a trusted charity than to respond to a direct request from someone with whom you do not usually correspond. You do NOT need to give the government or a solicitor your personal information in order to receive the federal Coronavirus relief money or to get it any faster.
Words of Hope: And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:19
Words of Hope: When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul. Psalm 94:19
Tip: Search God’s Word for passages that speak to your needs and concerns. Write them on a sticky note or index card and place them around your house to see. Find verses that also encourage you to praise God. He is faithful and will not forsake you no matter what you face.
Helpful Hint: God speaks to us through His written Word – the Bible. It is always a good thing to spend time in God’s Word. Now is an especially good time. God has abundant GOOD NEWS to counter and even defeat the bad news of what occurs in the world. Consider “Walking in the Word” from the LEARN menu bar on our home page. Go to the beginning and start with day one of a forty day journey through Scripture verses and meditative thoughts. Go to the bottom of the page and use the “previous” and “forward” buttons to begin and continue the journey. It was provided several years ago, but it is still a helpful tool and continues to be available for you.
Helpful Hint: Christians have peace knowing our God is greater than anything we face. One way or another we will be victorious. Use COVID as an acronym to remember that Jesus “Conquers Our Viruses and Infectious Diseases.”
Helpful Hint: We are told to wash our hands for at least 20 seconds. Sing this verse as you wash, to gauge the time, as well as focus your mind on the God who cleanses us and promises His good will for us in Jesus. Some may consider Amazing Grace to be a sad song we sing at funerals. It is a comforting song and can remind us that God has been and will continue to be with us because of His gracious heart. “Through many dangers, toils and snares I have already come; His grace has brought me safe thus far, His grace will lead me home.”
