  1. Praying along with you that we will NOT go back to “normal” after the crisis subsides. May we all be changed and intentional in our resolve to live and love like Christ.

  2. Hello Mothers on the Battlefield, I am honored to stand in the gap with you as we teach our children the love of Christ. Then we teach school subjects and learn new games to play. What a joy and a blessing to have every day time to watch my children grow and have input when they have the why questions. God, help me be a better example for my children. Please remind me to be grateful and to fill up on quality time with You and in Your word. We have a great task at hand, trust and obey. God order our steps, protect our medical staff, strengthen those who cook, clean, comfort others, volunteer, pray, and believe that You will continue to sustain us. Please forgive our slack lifestyles, our poor choices, our lies,our cheating in any and all ways and for taking Your love and kindness for granted. Bless Your Holy name! We need You Lord and we love You Lord.

  3. Karina,
    Yes, now more than ever we need to be the body of Christ, the Lord’s ambassadors, salt and light, a city on a hill. Here is one way you can help to do that – aid those who are starving through this pandemic because they claim Jesus Christ as Lord. I invite anyone interested in sacrificially helping to stop by my blog post on this subject: https://walkingwellwithgod.blogspot.com/2020/04/what-would-you-do.html
    Great post Karina…

  4. It about being the Church to the world not only at this time of the Covid 19. But at all times. The Church is not the building the pretty class stained windows and pictures on the walls. No it us the saved. We are the Church. We are the Church the body the hands and feet of Jesus. We are to do what Jesus would us to do and that is show his love to everyone. No matter what skin color or race they are. Plus love them like Jesus. Forgive that person who hurts us especially more so if saved. Even if you think they should know better. Keep showing Jesus love at all times. Being very careful what we say to people. As our words can make people up and hurt people. We want them not hurt people but show them the Love of Jesus. Especially if that person not saved. So as they will see Jesus in us. Say why there is something different about you. What is it. You can tell them. It Jesus living in you. They might hopefully want it and get saved for themselves. We are not to look people for the things they say are do are if doing wrong we that are saved. We are to not judge them. We are to love them pray for them see them as Jesus would that is is beautiful person. Yes there is a beautiful person beyond all they are going through. We can pray for them. Be thank full on to Jesus we are not in there shoes. Pray ask God to make them see to get the help they need. Find him. Live our lives for Jesus so the world see Jesus shinning in us. Let us the saved be a people that everything we do and say is about Jesus. Showing his Love to a lost world and praying for them and being the Church the real Church. Not the building. The Church people that care. To be the hands feet to help people who need it. Like Jesus did caring for all people of all walks of life when on earth. Love todays reading xxx

  5. Karina,

    I spent 10 years caring for my aging parents with their multiple medical issues including dementia. In June 2015 I quit a good job to be more available for my dad. I was out of work 1.5 years. Then I only went back part-time. During that time I put dad in geriatric psych hospital twice. He ended up dying in the hospital March 15, 2017. It was a surreal day for me. I was kind of happy. Knowing he was in Heaven with mom with mind restored. My pastor talks often about us (people) being the church-not the building. Yes it is high time we Christians go out & show this country God’s love & shed His light down here. We can do so much for so many. This may start a revival in our country. Long time needed.

    Blessings 🙂
