During this pandemic, God gives us opportunities to share with others about trusting Him.

When we live in fear, we’ll turn to anyone for hope, but we’re also reminded to turn to God for spiritual guidance.

A crisis like these stirs our emotions, and we want to feel secured by family and loved ones spiritually.

Loving others like Jesus can be as simple as telling someone, “It’s okay, God has it under control.”

Perhaps, your neighbor lives by themselves and they have no one to connect to share their thoughts and feelings.

This gives anyone a free phone call to check up on them, and remind them that they’re not alone during this health pandemic.

How we make each other feel represents spiritual love

In order to show spiritual love others we must, be mindful, available, bold, graceful, and giving.

While staying at our homes gives us a chance to take on self-care, we also receive joy by simply connecting with others.

Personally, I know when I get anxious about dramatic predicaments, something about calling on God gives me internal security.

Even though he’s not physically with me, it’s how God makes me feel that I’ll always appreciate it.

A connection isn’t a one-way highway. Both people should notice each other, recognize their doubts or fears, and to openly accept them.

This will express that we’re all imperfect. Accepting your own challenges and praying God can move through us, helps others to become more open while not feeling judged about it.
