Every serious statesman understands we must reopen our country and we are! It will not be the same until vaccines are produced, but each state will devise a plan producing viable commerce while cognizant of the hot spots. If we wait until every vestige of the virus is gone, so will our economy be gone

The coronavirus is bad enough, but the pundits at Fox-News are just as bad defending Donald Trump. First of all, no president has ever bragged on himself like Trump does, and he gets a lot of encouragement from the anchors at Fox-News when it is clear the man is a danger to this country

OPINION - Humanity is under siege due to the evil coronavirus, and worse when the experts cannot agree on whether masks are a protection or not.

OPINION - When Donald Trump speaks, nobody takes him for the truth-teller, well almost nobody, except those Republicans who want desperately to make a purse out of a sow’s ear.

All things change, but Jesus never! In Hebrews ch. 13 we read “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” And right there, He also promised “I will never leave you, nor forsake you.” So, “Fear not, only believe” (Lk. 8:50)

OPINION: Donald Trump wants us to relax because we are doing fine, he says that this will pass. We are at war with coronavirus and “I am a war president, and I will win.”

Our government was created by our founders to be accountable to its citizens. Democracy requires transparency to work. Self-governance requires that people be informed of what our government is doing and to participate in the decision making process. Our elected officials have the obligation to help our citizens navigate resources, be facilitators of information, speak up for the needs and concerns of all communities.

So I was asking the Lord for a word for His church this evening. The first thing I got was 2nd Chronicles 7:14, and then Hebrews Chapter 12 in my spirit man. I know God is speaking, however we are those that must listen, and find grace to finish the race set before us acceptably before God. I encourage all to read Hebrews Chapter 12 in full. This is just a portion.

I am watching CNN and MSNBC this morning. Trump is the idiot killing America! They were praising former Obama health officials who would have anticipated coronavirus, building hospital capacity, developing tests even before the virus was known, and we wouldn’t be headed for the end of the world.

There is an invisible enemy among us! Namely, COVID-19, or more commonly called the coronavirus. As many of you are aware we have in the past faced national emergencies, seen and unseen. To name a few, HIV/AIDS, Ebola, swine flu, and 9-11.

The human body, thanks to millions of years of evolution, is finely-tuned to respond almost instantly to threats and perceived threats. Our brain’s evolutionary mandate has always been “better safe than sorry.” And while that system works – and has worked – remarkably well for threats like saber-toothed cats, it does not work so well in the kind of all-pervasive, long-term anxiety we are facing because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

When it concerns coronavirus, Trump tries to shrug it off saying/telling us not to panic, and that it will be over by summer. There, the know-it-all has spoken, and Vice President Pence said it’s just a few cases and we are on top of the situation, and we are throwing a million bucks at it. Plus, Congress has just passed a coronavirus bill for $8 billion and stay-calm Trump couldn’t find a pen fast enough to sign it.

Life and death are in the power of the tongue. Why speak negative words over yourself or others! Let your words be seasoned with the salt of God’s Word! There is great power when we come into agreement with God’s Word, to build up ourselves and others, as well as speak into our destinies, the goodness of God’s promises. Guard your heart and mind, that what comes in will be that which honors God! Try not fill your life with hatred, violence, or immoral thoughts.

“For the thing, I greatly feared has come upon me, and what I dreaded has happened to me.” This is a biblical reference of a statement made by Job in the book of Job. Fear is a powerful emotion and motivates people to react or not act in a positive manner. Uncontrolled fear or irrational fear cripples people and keep them from pursuing and reaching their dreams and living their best life.
