Could you use some good news? A laugh? We really enjoyed this new YouTube series (click the screen below to watch) with actor/producer John Krasinski, Some Good News. In this video, Krasinski shares about some of the incredible things people are doing for each other during this quarantine. One of our favorite lines is “marriage is the most romantic thing of all,” which is the introduction to a clip of a man singing Amazing Grace with his wife, an Alzheimer’s patient–he is outside the window of her room in a nursing home.
There are other sources of good news and encouragement on the internet that we have found and enjoy: Writer Ann Voskamp sends out one email each weekend called Multivitamins for the Soul. It is full of good news, encouragement, photographic celebrations of the glory of God’s creation, and incredible music that praises God. It is also posted on her website as a blog. Check it out at AnnVoskamp.com.
One of the best spiritual disciplines for dealing with life’s challenges is practicing gratitude. Let’s fill the comments with what we are grateful for! We at IFA will start–all our staff are healthy and free of COVID-19. We have been able to keep working. IFA intercessors keep contacting us through emails and phone calls with encouraging words. More than 100,000 prayers have been posted on the COVID-19 Prayer Wall. We encourage you to visit daily to pray for the new names posted on the prayer wall. Mostly, like you, we are grateful for Jesus, for our salvation and for our relationships with Him.
God bless you all.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. (Rom 15:13)
