After being in lock-down for 2 months

I have been repeating the same schedule everyday; cooking for 3 boys, cleaning the house, and working and it is making me feel sick and frustrated. But I realized that we are living in lockdown on earth and repeat the same day whatever way we live. The things that we need to learn is to love and the life of love will be piled up. Every day we will become a better version of ourselves and the spell will be broken when we learned to love the people deeply and truthfully. When I am in love, it doesn’t matter whether I am in lockdown or not. I need to keep walking the path of faith with God and love the people whom God has given me.

These are really unique and peculiar days. Who knew it would be this difficult just being at home with family for almost 100 days now? No one saw this coming. It’s frustrating, annoying, and sickening at times. I have heard of reports of teenagers becoming suicidal and I think the frustration over the death of George Floyd has released so many pent-up emotions from the lockdown.

It is really only by God’s grace and amazing patience that could get us through these. And by God’s grace, after more than 2 months, after the frustrations and annoyance, I honestly feel much, much closer now with my wife and 3 kids than before the pandemic. All I can say is Romans 8:28.

Being lockdown for 2 months makes us realize how good it is to save for “rainy days” in order to sustain our daily living…Although it is annoying sometimes because it is too boring too being at home, like doing the daily routines and the like, but at the same time it is good time to bond and draft some plans for the near future too… we don’t know what happens next after this pandemic, so we should pray solemnly and be grateful that God spare us away from being infected with this deadly virus… the key is to be grateful as always and have faith to God that everything will come into place as what he planned.

This pandemic lock-down taught me a lot of things. It made me reflect and realize who I am, what I want and where I should be going. Despite of doing the same routine day after day, there are also good things on the other side. I learned new skills and even discovered new hobbies and interests. I kinda reinvented myself and changes my plans but still stick to my goals. I got the time to analyze some personal issues and got deeper understanding of everything that happened in the past until where I am right now. I became more close to God and appreciate all the things I have because of Him. I hope when this pandemic is over, we will always be grateful, be a better person, spread love and stop the hate, never take everything and everyone for granted and always have faith in everything He does.

I agree with you @Jean…Maybe this pandemic serves as a reset button for us all to make things right… to change whatever we need to change within ourselves may it be our spiritual relationship to God…whatever we realize during this lockdown, I hope that it will be applied even if the pandemic is over…If today we learn how to cook, then continue cooking for your loved ones…if today you learn how to plant, then continue planting whatever you like…if today you develop your spiritual relationship to God, then contine to grow more with God…at the end of each day, we have to be grateful as always…:blush:

After being lockdown in 2 months I realized that God is so Good to His children who trust in Him and I learned that if you put God first you never be last. God is there for my family and He never leave us behind He give all our needs and guide us and protect us in any sickness. I thank God for His love for me.

This lockdown remind me how God is so Good to my family God is always there for us and he sustained all our needs its true that if you trust in Him there is nothing to worry because God is our father and he cares for His children.

During the lockdown, many people are trying to do different activities everyday while some are having a really hard time. This made us realize how we should not only think about ourselves during a situation like this but to also help those in need. The Lord is giving and we should be too.
Let us pray for all families thriving to survive this pandemic and may the Lord give us strength to wake up everyday and do the things we need to do because there is a future ahead of us. The Lord is with us and He will always stay by our side. Amen.

Being lockdown for 2months, is such a blessing to be alive and safe. Aside from doing house chores during lockdown, I’ve notice many things about myself. I realized that I need to build-up my capabilities at work or even humanity act towards our behaviour. I saw some good impact of lockdown to our surroundings. Air pollution comes from vehicle were lessen and oceans are recovering in their habitats. I also noticed negative impact of this lockdown but I don’t want to focus on it, because I want to have an optimistic attitude while things are not getting better.

I agree! People are truly busy especially in social media haha! In my hometown, people are busy bartering stuffs like old clothes to 2 packs of yakult or gatorade…while others are busy with gardening stuffs too…but I feel pity for those people who are actually having a hard time to meet their needs everyday. If we can extend some help, we should…but if we are also struggling to make ends meet, then let us all pray for them…

Agreed. I hope when this pandemic is over, may we continue to become a better person not because we’ve gotten to know God but because that’s what we should be. May we continue to serve others with kindness, love and compassion. Let’s continue to be generous and be grateful for everyone and everything we have in life. Let’s be more conscious about our health and safety. Let’s be more responsible for our actions and words. Let’s continue to spread love and stop the hate. May we never forget what this pandemic has taught us. Lets continue working hard and save for the rainy days. May we continue to grow individually and spiritually.

After Being Lock Down For 2 months ?
I was reflecting on this question but i think i have been productive in this time of pandemic. As my previous comment on any topics here, Im the Runner of my family Buying medicines and Goods. Im doing this voluntarily because my parents are too old, And you know the are more prone in this virus. After the task i am going to workout 1 hour to 2 hours in a day. and twice a month my christian community having a bible study using a Video App.

Being in lock down, I realized how blessed I actually was. Despite the hardships, we have food to eat on the table, we have a bed to sleep on, a house to live, and a family. Sometimes we forget to see how our lives are so full of blessings because we got used to it. I am practicing on being grateful for what I have everyday.
