This is a follow-up post to this one on going bonkers during the #Pandemic.
Life was already a bit boring pre-COVID-19 since I'm in the empty nest. It was calm and peaceful, but I was always on the lookout for what else to get involved in. My husband is a hermit, so I am pretty much in charge of our social life or on my own. I work from home so need outlets.
Right now my husband is also working from home. He likes that he can go a few days without showering! He says it's too much work now to get dressed to go into the office which is now open as long as people social distance.
So back to my last post about going on a God Hunt.
I was compelled to begin with a declaration about what I believe. I've put it into picture form:
I have a stack of books beside my bed. I read a few pages from each nightly and take notes. I didn't come up with anything earth-shattering yet, but good nonethless.
Here are a few of my notes:
Like a football team all working toward the same goal, you, God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are on the same team.
Don't hesitate to use the website GotQuestions.org to learn when you have questions.
Because you are made in the Image of God, you represent God to the world. That's important.
Give others the gift of attention whenever you can.
God already has the solution for your life.
You will come out better than before, so don't fear.
God will make a way where there seems no way.
Let Jesus feed and sustain you.
Do what you CAN instead of focusing on what you CANNOT do right now.
Take one day at a time.
No real steps were spelled out, but lots of encouragement.
I am not making plans but assessing each day and deciding as the day goes on how I'll spend it.
We are in a fortunate age to have technology that keeps us connected. I'm the leader of a shelter-at-home Facebook group. I'm part of other groups too.
I'm updating some of my platforms here and there. I'm out of Twitter Jail finally.
I once talked in a mastermind group about ORGANIC GROWTH. I think someone thought I meant growing vegetables without fertilizer. No, what I mean by organic growth is when we get an idea and take action. It is about making tweaks and taking small steps. Updating my platforms, for instance, is organic growth if it helps me connect with more people and make more sales eventually.
One thing we can all do is be part of organic growth right now. If you have a ministry, small business, or are wanting to grow a platform for your writing, music, or another undertaking, every small step you take online will help. You won't see the progress, perhaps, except in hindsight.
My organic growth is happening right now as I write this blog post. What is it you need to do to take a new step?
