Reflections: Amanda 26 March

Almost time for bed at the end of day 3.
How are you coping?
Please know it is completely normal to be all at sea during this time as we adjust to this new way of life in lockdown. What we are experiencing is grief. We have lost something.
Many of us are grieving our old way of life, we are missing seeing members of our families, our friends and we’re mourning our freedom.
And grief can bring an overwhelming surge of emotions, we may find we’re like a see-saw, up one minute or one day and down the next, with anger, doubt and fear for the future all jostling for space within us.
Many of us will have wondered at some point in these last few days if this is a nightmare, wishing we might wake up from it.
It has often been said that the words “Do not fear” appear 366 times in our Bible… one for every single day of the year.
And I’m pretty sure that Jesus spoke them for such times as these!
And so, tonight as you lie down to sleep.
I pray that you may find rest, I pray that you will sense God watching over you,
And I pray that He will give you peace 💟
