Making social distance count

Marianne’s Journal Entry #2

Hey yo, How are you and you and you?

AUSTRALIA — In the midst of the current covid-19, pandemic paranoia, rants, terror, and fear mongering. I’d like to share the positive side of social distance. It’s having communion with Jesus.

I can’t help but see this as an opportunity to have that time to unwind, connect, to the source of love, godliness, righteousness, peace, and hope. It’s time to read His word, to pray for everyone and for oneself, to listen to Him.

I start mine by having that coffee and beautiful breakfast. then I will prepare my study table bring out my notebook and pen and then my bible. I will read 2 chapters from the old testament and then 2 chapters in the new testament. Afterwards, I will reflect and treasure His words in my heart.

I can sing praises and worship to him. I can read self-development blogs or books. I can blog right now. Dedicate all my energy for Jesus.

You see, I love distance and even with or without any virus. I would still have times of my own space and social distancing because I like that alone time in Jesus, it’s intimate. It helps me physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually.

Lastly, God’s love is somehow distant. He is in heaven and we are here on earth but His love is the greatest, He died and rose again just to be able to save us from sin and He wants us to be there with Him by having to give His kingdom in and for us. It is a living hope. A hope that doesn’t disappoint.

P. S The picture is my view as I was having my quiet time with Jesus. I was just appreciating it and remembering this beautiful moment.
