No April Fool's in 2020

No April Fool's in 2020

What a year we had in March, and that's no joke! Each and every one of us has been affected by COVID-19. There's a new normal for the time being, and many may feel like they have lost control of life. Thankfully, we know that God is ultimately in control. During this time, here are some scriptures to encourage you and give you HOPE.

2 Timothy 1:7 says: For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

Psalm 4:8 says: In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.

I Peter 5:6-7 says: So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

Philippians 4:6-7 says: Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

Isaiah 41:10 says: Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.

John 14:1 says: Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.
