I’ve been quite surprised at how I have reacted to the recent lockdown. It’s been more disappointing than I realised. I keep trying to remind myself that we are so lucky and are so blessed (i.e. the relative freedoms the lockdown still affords us, especially in a beautiful place like Wollongong!), but the disappointment remains.
Even as I wrote a draft view from the pew couch (attempting to encourage you all), I found the tone was so negative! It seemed to reflect my frustrations. These times can certainly weigh you down.
But as I re-write, I praise God for the Zoom Prayer Summit I recently joined. God encouraged me in ways I did not expect, which I hope to encourage you with also.
To be honest, at times, the Prayer Summit was quite comical. Someone had a coughing fit in the background of one prayer. Often people accidentally interrupted as they commentated on their difficulty in muting, while some camera angles were quite creative.
Spending more time at home than usual? Maybe you've got less work, study or social commitments? Maybe the kids have waay less teaching and learning time and are on your heals saying 'I'm boooored!' Try some boredom busters and see how many you can do in one week, or perhaps one day!
