Fixing our eyes on our King

“God gave us a spirit not of fear but of POWER and LOVE and SELF-CONTROL.” 2 Timothy 1:7

Every time I open turn on the news, or open up a social media app, it’s “Coronavirus this, Coronavirus that.” I’m becoming weary seeing photos of empty shop shelves, and deserted, usually busy town streets. Every evening on our national news, they announce the latest death toll, due to this virus, and the rising number of people contracting it. The virus dominates conversations all over the entire world, causes divisions in communities, and generates fear.

If these news stories, and even facts about the virus, are ALL we are reading/looking at as Christians, our focus can very subtly start to slide away from the Lord our God, who is STILL King of kings and greater than any virus, and our hearts and minds will be totally consumed with, and focused upon the virus and the fear surrounding it.


Yes, it can be very scary….or, not. It’s really as simple as that. We can choose to fix our eyes on the virus, or, instead, on our Mighty God.

We are Jesus’ ambassadors. He has armed us with POWER, LOVE and SELF CONTROL. Yes, I know that the virus can be dangerous for some, but let’s not allow it to cause us to lose perspective or focus.

(But we do still need to wash our hands often 😀)

I love getting together with friends and sharing with each other over a cup of coffee what God is doing in our lives, it boosts my faith and lifts my heart. That's the aim of this blog. There's a story behind it; It was inspired after a friend gave me a single mustard seed, saying ‘that’s all it takes Jill’. What my friend didn’t know was that the very same morning God had reminded me of a promise He'd made to me over 20 years before regarding writing. I took the mustard seed home, planted it and watched it grow from a tiny sapling to a large, flourishing shrub at our front door. Every time I look at it it reminds me that our God is always true to his promises. Jesus lives in and works through his people, every single day. It's good to share what he's doing! I love talking about Him and writing about Him.
