Every day, more than ever, I’m feeling more and more people are going through a really hard time.
Some of them are people I know and Love, but most are people I don’t know, still, I can feel them.
I know you’re probably already doing this, but I feel compelled to remind everyone to reach out to the people who are on the fringes of your life. Connect with those people you don’t usually call or hang out with, but you have their email or their phone number. Just see if they’re okay.
Many people are not okay.
I got the nudge to connect with someone I see only occasionally and the message I got back is that they’re miserable.
I used to speak at Agape’s Sunday night service once a month. I did that for about 10 years. And what I often saw was quite a few people who had too much time on their own over the weekend.
There are many folks who implode if they have too much time alone. If you’re one of them, I encourage you to find a way to be of service in your community. There’s a lot that people need help with now.
Maybe you like to bake, and you could just bake cookies for everyone in the neighborhood.
Maybe you can just determine who among the people you know is having a tough time and let them know you care.
My prayer partners and I have been meeting on the phone each week for about 14 years. When the pandemic started our 30 minute phone call once a week became a 1 hour zoom. And now we get together twice a week. We need the extra connection and we’re enjoying it. It’s precious to us.
It’s true that some people choose to look at things with so much judgment and negativity that they make themselves miserable, and still, we can have compassion for them, pray and know that there is that within them that can transcend even this desperate misery.
Praying brings benefit to everyone. I’m so glad you’re praying with me today! Thank you!
