ow are you? No, how are you really? During these days of quarantine?

Who’d of thunk it? That the world would be shut down, by a novel coronavirus, called Covid-19?

What’s your origin story? How did you close America, from coast to coast?

By the way, did you all know that a bat is a coronavirus super host?

When I hear super host, I think of a monologue, a house band, an audience providing applause and cheer.

Dear humanity, what were we doing before Covid-19 slid on the scene, like a social event canceling machine?

My Rabbi said: “Repent, for The Kingdom of Heaven is near!”

Do we lay these actionable words to heart, in a way that is pristine and sincere?

We were busy being busy, were we not? Now it’s quarantime to rest.

Yawns of boredom, misinformation, headlines of anxiety; our faith is being put to the test.

May these Scriptures bring us ever nigh, to The King of Kings, Yahweh Adonai.

As we distance and wash our hands, may our love deepen for Yah, Yahshua, and His Regal Commands.

“Therefore, I tell you, don’t worry about your life — — what you will eat or drink; or about your body — — what you will wear. Isn’t life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds flying about! They neither plant nor harvest, nor do they gather food into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you worth more than they are? Can any of you by worrying add a single hour to his life? And why be anxious about clothing? Think about the fields of wild irises, and how they grow. They neither work nor spin thread, yet I tell you that not even Shelomoh in all his glory was clothed as beautifully as one of these. If this is how God clothes grass in the field — — which is here today and gone tomorrow, thrown in an oven — — won’t He much more clothe you? What little trust you have! So don’t be anxious, asking, ‘What will we eat?,’ ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘How will we be clothed?’ For it is the pagans who set their hearts on all these things. Your Heavenly Father knows you need them all. But seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Don’t worry about tomorrow — — let tomorrow worry about itself! Today has enough troubles already!” Matthew 6:25–34

“Don’t worry about anything; on the contrary, make your requests know to God by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving. Then God’s shalom, passing all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with the Messiah Yahshua.” Philippians 4:6,7

Shaul remained two whole years in a place he rented for himself; and he continued receiving all who came to see him, openly and without hindrance proclaiming the Kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Yahshua The Messiah. Acts 28:30,31

“Unload your burden on Yahweh, and He will sustain you. He will never permit the righteous to be moved.” Psalm 55:22

“No, in all things we are super conquerors, through the one who has loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor other heavenly rulers, neither what exists nor what is coming, neither powers above nor powers below, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God which comes to us through the Messiah Yahshua, our Lord.” Romans 8:37–39

“Yahweh your God is in your midst, a Mighty One who will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness; He will quiet you by His love; He will exult over you with loud singing.” Zephaniah 3:17

What I am leaving with you is shalom — — I am giving you my shalom. I don’t give the way the world gives. Don’t let yourselves be upset or frightened. John 14:27
