SEMESTER 1   |   WEEK 6
A Lockdown Thought from Sam Kilpatrick
The words 'quarantine' and 'isolation' can be pretty scary words for us to hear. It can bring feelings of anxiety and claustrophobia, or boredom. 
For me it's actually been a really great time to slow down. What an opportunity for us all to step away from the burden of busyness, and take a deep breath. Or 100 deep breaths. 
Taking the time to be still has allowed God to be a part of all of my life, rather than a few fleeting minutes when I feel like I can spare them and I can be bothered. I don't know about you, but having God be in all the parts of my life changes things.
I've found myself full of creativity, and with the courage to actually do something about it!
Even though life isn't exactly how we want it to be right now, I'll leave you with a mantra that I speak over myself often:
Even so, He is still good, and I am still His beloved child.
That will never change.

PRAYER FOR REST

God, grant me rest. Bring me peace. Give me a time of refreshing. Rejuvenate my mind. Restore my body. Awaken my soul. Let me and my family rest in your shadow knowing that you are overlooking our lives. You have ordained for me to work, and also have declared that I rest from that work. Provide for me a calmness and freedom to be able to relax and celebrate your presence with family and friends.
