We are now several days into various restrictions and MBCH's responses to those restrictions. Travel has been severely reduced and we are using the technology at our disposal for visits and meetings.
Because of the seriousness of this situaiton and the stress it can place on the staff and the clients we are privileged to serve, I posted an announcement on the intranet for our staff and thought you might enjoy reading it (and perhaps even utilizing the suggestion, should you feel stress, tension, anxiety, and/or panic coming on).
"It would be easy to fall prey to the enemy and become fearful, which leads to feeling panic, and to overreact over sometimes
the smallest things that the evil one may use to trip us up.
When you begin to experience that sense of uncertainty, I would encourage you to count to ten, take a deep breath or two,
and say something like, "Lord, I know You are in control and I put my trust in You. Help me to be rational in my feelings
and in my response. Remind me how much You love me and that You are right here beside me. You are my light and my
salvation, whom shall I fear? You are the stronghold of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?'
We will get through this, God is in control. He is still on the throne. He has not abandoned us, nor will He. Keep the faith.
Continue serving Him in a way that glorifies and honors Him by meeting the needs of His children.
I pray for you and for your faithfulness. I pray strength, wisdom, courage, and peace will be showered on you."
I pray for you, the reader, the same. May you experience the endless love and comfort of our Heavenly Father as we deal with the pandemic and its ramifications on our lives.
Thank you for your continuing prayers for MBCH and for your investment in helping us change lives for eternity.
