Monday Morning Inspiration
Good Morning My Beautiful Link Sisters.
I hope your day is off to an amazing start! I thought I would share something with you that I shared after we found ourselves working from home, shopping for Lysol and toilet paper, and “zooming” among other things due to the pandemic. This was one of the early messages that I wrote for a chapter meeting Linkspiration after we started meeting virtually. However, this will be new to our new sisters in heart and friends in spirit.
Since most of us are back in the office, back to church, back to visiting, and even back to traveling, I thought this was a great time to share it again. I wanted to share it so that we can each assess where we are after things seem to have settled down. Let’s see where we are after the initial horror of COVID. Let’s see what our “After This” looks like. You decide where you are.
AFTER THIS Will friends and family stay in contact as much-After This? Will we say I Love You as often-After This? Will we continue to pray every day-After This? Will we continue to rest-After This? Will we keep our eyes stayed on Jesus-After This? There will be an After This. What will your After This look like? What will your After This feel like? Shame on us if we go back to our old normal, After This? I am challenging myself as much as I am challenging my friends and family. Let’s strive to do better and be better After This.
Love you all. Be Blessed
33“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
Deuteronomy 31:6,8 “Be strong and bold; have no fear or dread of them, because it is the Lord your God who goes before you. He will be with you; He will not fail you or forsake you.”
Today’s Prayer: God, we thank you for being such a good and amazing God. We thank you for allowing all of us to still be here “After This.” Although several of us have experienced personal illness and family illness and loss, we thank you that we are still here. We thank you for the time that we had with our family and loved ones. God you knew long before we did who we would be, where would be, and how we would be “After This.” Now God we ask you to continue to be with us. Continue to guide us. Continue to allow us to lean and depend on you. Continue to prepare us for all that is still to come in our lives, so that we can assist our family and friends. Help us to continue to be here for our sisters in heart and friends in spirit both during and after whatever our next “This” is. We love you and we magnify your name at all times, not just “After This.” Amen

Have an absolutely amazing week. I pray that all of our ‘Afters” are even better than our “Before.” May God bless and keep you all.
Love to you all.
