Thanks to everyone for your responses—they are so encouraging to read! Here are today’s:

Legitimate concerns over food (as opposed to hoarding) has led me to think more deeply about the importance of prayer and fasting. I need to feed more on the word of God and be willing to discipline my thoughts and prayers through a period of fasting. So far, I have only fasted one day, but it has definitely helped me stay more focused on spiritual matters and place more trust in God. (Someone who wished to remain anonymous)

Family matters most. I appreciate my home more now. (Landon)

I find that during this time, what I miss most is the fellowship with my brothers and sisters. Sure, we text and call, but it’s not the same as sharing a hug or warm handshake, or a pat on the back. My intention when all of this is over is to try to be as approachable as I can and to work harder to approach others. (David)

Having friends to talk to is more important than I thought. (Eric)

In closing, David B. shared the story of the person who stood up to lead prayer at church and said, “Lord, I hate buttermilk. Lard is disgusting. And flour doesn’t do anything for me either. But when you mix it all together and put it in a hot oven, I just love the biscuits that come out.”

He went on to pray, “When things come along that we don’t like, help us to realize it’s all part of Your mixing and baking. And when it’s all done and we’re with You, it will be better than any biscuit we ever had.”

Now is we are children, then we are heirsheirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in His sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. For I consider the present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. (Romans 8:17-18)
