Life in Quarantine- Part 4

Today is Sunday. The Lord’s day. Church day. Instead, we play basketball and enjoy the beautiful sunset.

Yes we are having a fun family night. Yes I love this weather. Yes I’m enjoying this family time. But my heart hurts too .

I miss going to church. I miss my church family. I miss singing in the choir. I miss it all.

The day has come that we have been told we cannot gather in the church. Hopefully this doesn’t last too long.

Something I’ve been doing daily to get me through is this- YOUTUBE.

YouTube has become my best friend. Y’all know I love music. Music speaks to me in ways that others don’t always understand. Music has pulled me through every situation in my life.

I never thought YouTube would become so crucial to me, but these past few weeks it has been. When I can sit on the couch while the kids play and watch video after video and cry tears of joy and worship like never before, I know that something is happening.

Tonight, I encourage you to find your thing. Whatever will put you in worship mode. Don’t let this virus, this quarantine rob you of your praise.

There’s a song out choir sings and it says this:

I’ve lost some good friends along life’s way
Some loved ones departed in heaven to stay
But thank God I didn’t lost everything
I’ve lost faith in people who said they cared
In time of my crisis they were never there
But in my disappointment, in my season of pain
One thing never wavered, one thing never changed I never lost my hope,
I never lost my joy
I never lost my faith
But most of all, I never lost my praiseMy praise still here,
My praise still hereI’ve let some blessings slip away
When I lost my focus and went astray
But thank God I didn’t lost everything
I lost possessions that were so dear
I lost some battles walking in fear
But in the midst of my struggles, in my season of pain
One thing never wavered, one thing never changed I never lost my hope,
I never lost my joy
I never lost my faith
But most of all, I never lost my praisePraise, Praise, Praise, Praise, Praise
Most of all, I never lost my praise my praise still here,
My praise still here
.

It’s easy to lose our spirit of joy when we can’t go to church and be around our church family. I miss every smiling face. I have become hungrier than ever for a deeper relationship with God. I believe when we can go back to church, He is going to move in a mighty way. Until then, I refuse to lose my praise. My prayer is that you will chose to do the same.

Never forget what He’s done for you.

Find your thing and praise! Don’t hold back. Don’t let it go. Give God the praise.

I encourage you tonight to let all the stress and worry and anxiety of this world go and praise God for all you have. Here’s a few of the songs I love to worship to:
