These next few weeks / months may afford you opportunities you do not usually have. You may be working from home. You may have more time with family and/or friends as you are quarantined or self-isolated.
In a world of over-stimulation and noise, what can you do in this new environment to care for yourself and build stronger relationships? Perhaps put your phone down, and spend your extra quality time with the close people in your life - including Jesus! Perhaps set some time aside each day to be quiet - to enable your mind and spirit to find the quietness it craves.
I wonder how your prayer life could profit over these next weeks.
Today, consider minimizing your phone use and screen time. Give your senses some space! If you have more time because you are self-isolating or working from home, schedule in some much-needed quiet time.
If your business travel has been restricted, or you are a contract worker finding yourself with more free time (or anything similar!), think about joining a Group to encourage others and be encouraged in this season.

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Matthew 7:13-14 NIV https://bible.com/bible/111/mat.7.13-14.NIV
The Choice of Trust I absolutely love referring to the Noah Webster’s 1828 Dictionary as many of Noah Webster's original word definitions contain references to the King James Bible itself; this was all before it was diluted into our contemporary dictionaries. Literally this is the definition found in that dictionary: TRUST , noun 1. Confidence; a reliance or resting of the mind on the integrity, veracity, justice, friendship or other sound principle of another person. He that "putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe." Proverbs 29:25 KJV 2. He or that which is the ground of confidence. ..."O Lord God: thou art my trust from my youth. Psalms 71:5 KJV Trust is a confident expectation. Trust, like faith, is not a feeling. It is a choice. I love that “he that putteth his TRUST in the Lord shall be safe” part of the definition above. Safe? Hmmm? In this world we simply cannot put our trust into imperfect humans. There is only One that cannot fail or forsake us.
“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments. Exodus 20:4-6 NIV https://bible.com/bible/111/exo.20.4-6.NIV
