God loves you when you don’t do anything, like today. Well, I did some things, but I didn’t accomplish what I truly wanted to do. I wanted to be productive. With the world on lockdown, I should be able to accomplish a lot, but I’m not. On top of that, I have the audacity to be tired.
Today, I read that when you are not active your brain becomes like a computer. Although your laptop is running when you close your computer, it goes to sleep until it is opened once more. Although I may be up, when I am not active, my brain sleeps until I am active again. Similarly, I watched an interview of a man that was recovering from the Coronavirus. As he was battling this virus, at rest, he felt as if he recovered from his illness. When he was active, he felt worse, almost as if he was dying. When lying dormant the virus was killing him even though he was at rest. When he was active, it put him in the most pain, but he was keeping himself alive.
During this time, whether you experience the virus or not, in one way or the other paralyzation will be our defeat, if we forget to move. So, I'm going to stay active the best way that I can. Also, I’m not going to be hard on myself-this a new territory and as long as I persevere I am going to be ok. For those of us who like to stay active, it may seem as if there is no reason to move. Find your worth in God’s love and not what you do and I’m pretty sure you will find something to keep you occupied. :)
