Shut-ins again!

Spokane Wa. 09/13/2020

Violent is our city’s smoke filled sky’s. Nestled in a Valley the infectious pollution blankets our streets. It more than tickles our nose. Agitates the body from head to toe. Air quality at an all time low. Yet Lord we know you are still in control. Keep our anxious hearts from beating fast from the unknown. For thee I uphold.

Shut in tight, blinds and curtains drawn. The smell still seeps through the cracks in our walls. Recirculate the air they say. This is all absolutely absurd. You can only see the tallest buildings silhouettes. The wildest of days seen in my lifetime yet. Vacuumed in tightly, the air we breathe causing anxiety. Eyes itchy, throats burn, our stomachs churn. Yet Lord we know you are still in control.

Our city only just began to open up, and it had been a slow phasing too. Masked, rules set in place. Now our city is shut back down, and locked up. A thief in the night the fires burned crazed. Phased us back to shut in.

Virus plagues, pollution desecrates, fires broiling. Our city is soiled in soot fallen from the earth, we can taste it. None discriminate. Shut-ins, the news advising us to stay home. As soon as we take one step forward, we are just as quick taking three steps back. Under attack. The Lord is doing something in this land, waking His people! Shaking things up a bit. People are unhinged! Venomous and bent. Evil lurks. To thee I uphold. Knowing in all of this uncertainty, God is control. I believe we have seen a lot, but at the same time I believe we haven’t seen anything yet. Hold on tight, keep looking up for there is only one who knows. Keep looking at the one who hung on the cross for all who are lost!

I trust my unknown future to a very known God!

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Isaiah 41:10


Don’t give up before the miracle happens! Smile lots, forgive quickly, and never take life for granted!

    1. Thank you so very much, we are have a lot to do in this coming week. The mayor step in though, and just shut it all down. The air is so thick, it would be foolish for anyone to take a step out in it. Being in valley makes it worse, it takes longer to dissipate. I appreciate all the prayers. For I know they don’t fall on deaf ear. My heart is heavy for the malice in L.A. the world is just unhinged. I know what the Bible says, and I just pray daily to keep my eyes on the prize. Blessings, and prayers to you and yours! 🙏🏻

    1. Thank you so much for the kind words. We are under a state of emergency as of now. They are housing our homeless in area gyms. They have never done that in our city before. I pray God’s hand is on all of us! I love Isaiah 41:10 as well! Blessings, and thank you for the prayers. Lisa 🙏🏻💜

  1. I’m just a little south of you…about an hour. Our air is starting to clear just a bit more than yours but I relate to all you wrote and the battle with anxious thoughts. I’ve seen tiny bits of ash in some of the smoke over us and am reminded that in the Bible, ash was a symbol of repentance … and that the Lord gives beauty for ashes … I’m asking Him to show me how to pray and who to reach out to in all of this. Good post!

    1. I agree on all of this, I see many symbolisms in the Bible that are in direct correlation of what the world is going through now. That is why daily I have to say thy will, not mine me done. I have to give it all to Jesus. He knows all, and He always has our best. Even when we can’t see it right away. I readying myself to leave here soon. I can tell my son is feeling the move to, as he texted me good night last night. He said “I love you mom.” He knows he will no longer be just a few short miles away. All is good growth will come on both sides of this. He is so faithful to complete us. Blessings, and thank you for reaching out. Impeccable timing, I needed this! 💜🙏🏻
