I must admit, I’m not really excited about this self-quarantine. I like my freedoms. I like to come and go. I like the outdoors. I love crowds. So being holed up in our home has been a little bit of a difficult stretch for me. It's made me feel an aloneness—that I’m isolated from the world. I can’t quite get my bearings with other people. There’s a big difference between aloneness and being alone. God calls us to come to Him alone, quietly, so He can speak to us. “Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest,” the Bible says. This idea of seeking God alone is much different than aloneness. Aloneness is when you feel isolated, like I do. So, what do you do if you’re in this “aloneness” stage? Let me give you four things. First, create a time of worship where you listen to Christian music and speak out themes in the Bible and just worship our God. Second, get involved in a ministry. Find out which of your neighbors are struggling and help them. Write a note to someone who you haven't seen in a while but who has been impactful in your life. Do a surprising amount of ministry, even when you can't go outside. Third, build a strong prayer life. Talk to the Lord, seek Him, know Him so that there is a sense of communication that takes place. Finally, separate time to dream. You have more time. So, dream about what God wants to do in your life and the ministry you’re involved in. Dream a little. Cut loose. Don’t let the routine of life, which has been shattered by this crisis, rob you of the opportunity to dream of the future.
