- OVERCOME ANXIETY AND FEAR Fear, insecurity, and anxiety can so easily become a feature of our daily lives. We are in an emergency and get a lot of information about the virus and people who are dying. Everything is constantly changing. Uncertainty is the order of the day. But you can control your own process! How?
- TRUST GOD Firstly, get a time every day in which you can be quiet and talk to the Lord. Discuss everything that bothers you and all your fears and anxieties with Him. Read from the Bible – just a few verses and meditate on it. Reading your bible is a visit with God. Pray every day. Christianity is a relationship, not a religion. You can talk to the Lord and He talks back through His Word by His Spirit.
- ACT RESPONSIBLE For instance, be humble and respect other people. A good Christian is a good citizen. Follow the guidance of governments. Manage all information. Do not give in to bad rumours or false stories. Do not listen to conspiracy stories. Listen to experts whose integrity and reliability are beyond suspicion. Be flexible and constantly adjust your thinking and behaviour.
