Faith Over fear

i'm going to tell you what i think about social distancing

it's a bunch of crap

stop living life on fear

Faith over fear

it's about Faith that will 4ever supercedes fear

does coronavirus have that kind of influence

where it takes you out of character

really?

the Bible conveys in 1 John 4:18-19

"There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear because fear involves torment"

"But he who fears has not been made perfect in love"

"We love Him because He first loved us"

the He i'm referring to Jesus Christ Himself

the love ain't coming from people

because look at how they are behaving

you have a mother and a daughter beating up a woman over toilet paper

you have 1 person buying 10 loaves of bread

really?

please explain to me why a family of 3 need to buy 50 rolls of toilet paper and 100 rolls of paper towel

this is call fear

The Bible states in Proverbs 18:21 that "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit"

when you speak of fear, you give it life

1 negative word is all it takes

instead, speak courage, speak love, speak unity, speak encourgaement

give these words life

coronavirus will never ever conquer because true believers know

that we are more than conquerors in the blood of Jesus if you truly believe

i'm good because God got me

so stop with the dummy move of elbow to elbow daps

because it's silly

if an ad has to tell you to wash your hands after you used the bathroom

houston we have a problem

if the media is promoting safety tips about covering your mouth with your forearm after you cough

or sneezing into a tissue where you must wash your hands.

it's an embarrassment to humanity

these are fundamentals, yet essentials habits that you're supposed to do on the daily basis

while people are running around like chickens with no heads and brains

The Lord will provide, i'm good

and sad it may sound, it takes something catastrophic as this to bring unity?

i say this to the core , this is disingenuous

i want folks to remember something

for all the plagues that's happen, Lord Jesus Christ will 4ever always make it right

i just hope and pray that you know who He is.

Absolutely! God gives us discernment and common sense to protect ourselves and one another... but ultimately, He is in charge of every situation. Faith is essential always, but more so in difficult times. It seems like crisis brings out the best or the worst in people- some are thinking of others, but many are being selfish and greedy. Your poetry is always honest and enlightening, it describes aspects of our world very well- but more so, it shows that God is the only solution... not all of mankind's science, technology, politics or anything else. These things, plagues, wars, etc. are prophesied and signs of the times- but many don't understand.

God is in charge of all

The Lord is in charge

He protects us, we have to be wise and smart

This is a prophecy of plagues, wars, and fear 

this will come to pass

one thing for sure is crisis will either make a person stronger or weaker
