Down Time: Tres Haiku

Away from the crowds
Protecting family and homes
Social distancing

Pantry stocked and full
No reason to leave the house
Worries cast aside

At home with the Lord
Family covered in prayer
Finally, down time

I’m not certain if I am the only one, but this forced social distancing feels like an answer to prayer. There have been times in my life when I was so busy and tired that I longed for down time.

I am convinced that God causes all things to work for the good of those who love Him. I also believe that if a plague is spreading, then He allowed it for a reason.

Could it be I am not the only one who needed down time?

Could it be we now have time to stop and pray?

I don’t have the answers, but I do know the following people need our prayers and could use some down time to replenish and gain a fresh perspective during this situation. Remember them in your prayer time.

Medical professionals
Military personnel
First Responders
Government officials
School officials/staff who are still working
Business owners/managers
Truck drivers

I pray you all find perfect peace.


Isaiah 26:3-4 New Living Translation (NLT)

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.
