We Are Not in the Same Boat [By Nicki Peverett]

Inspiring reflection about what people may be going through during the Covid-19 pandemic. By Nicki Peverett.

We are not in the same boat . . .

I heard that we are all in the same boat, but it’s not like that. We are in the same storm, but not in the same boat. Your ship could be shipwrecked and mine might not be. Or vice versa.

For some, quarantine is optimal. A moment of reflection, of re-connection, easy in flip flops, with a cocktail or coffee. For others, this is a desperate financial & family crisis.

Our True Help [Thoughts from Psalm 121]

Trying times can provoke troublesome emotions—

Anxiety, fear, confusion, doubt, discouragement, try to enter our mind and steal our peace and joy.

So where do we turn for help and relief?

Many of us turn to the news, social media, or google search for help and answers. Sometimes we’re lucky and fall upon some really good advice. But more often than not we become inundated with information and can’t really know what’s accurate. And most of the information we read doesn’t address our deepest need, for inner strength and peace.

Thankfully, there is one true help always available and sure— GOD, OUR HEAVENLY FATHER.

Take a moment and meditate on Psalm 121. May God’s Word strengthen your heart, comfort your soul, and fill you with indescribable peace.

Psalm 121 The Passion Translation

As the leaves change color, I’m getting excited for one of my favorite upcoming holiday celebrations– Thanksgiving! Not so much because of the food and fellowship, (although those are awesome!), but because of the focus on gratitude. There’s something about being thankful and counting my blessings that makes me happy. Not just smiley happy, but really happy, deep inside. Praying you’ll experience greater joy today as you lift your heart to God.

“Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!” (Psalm 107:1).

Today is a new day filled with things to be thankful for. But if you’re feeling a tad blue, you may be tempted to go through your day and count your sorrows, and forget to count your blessings. Been there, done that, as I’m sure we all have. The result is often a troubled heart. Thankfully, there’s an awesome antidote to chase away the blues— counting our blessings.
