Sometimes it is hard to strike the right balance between being informed of the COVID-19 news, and being consumed by the news. Much of our news contains people trying to advance agendas and giving their own opinions about what is going on. I am continually reminding myself and others during this time to spend more time in God’s Word than in the news.

There’s something about swimming in God’s truth that will leave you feeling confident and refreshed.
