How are you doing? though I may already know
I hope you’re still standing in faith 

Considering how far you have already come
Thank you for your courage and strength

It is well, and God is still in control. Its been a while since we were asked to practice self quarantining. Time flies and we are now living in a new normal which is hard for almost everyone. While change is the most permanent thing in life it is hard to accept. I have hope that we have all it takes to adopt this “new normal” while waiting for the future.


The future will surely come. It is a promise we receive from God in Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. We have confidence in this promise because we serve a faithful God who will not go back on his word.

His word will always fulfill its purpose at the right time. Therefore, don’t focus on your fears, worries, anxieties, or the hardship you’re going through. You can acknowledge their existence but turn your focus to God’s goodness because He is still working even when you do not feel or see it. Most importantly, focus on what is on the other side and not what is going on right now., because victory awaits. Stay hopeful and you will see the goodness of God in the land of the living.

But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31

Thank you for reading and stay blessed always!

    Very encouraging.

    1. Marie Cook – I am a food lover, and cooking is therapeutic for me; it relaxes me and transports me to a quieter universe away from the noisy, busy modern world. I am a Counseling Mental Health & Wellness graduate student, wife, and stepmother. I love connecting with people from different cultural backgrounds through food, fashion, wisdom, and lifestyle in general. To be continued because I am still in the process of discovering who I am as I continue this journey called life. I promise to keep you all posted in the meantime.
