"TO AVOID SHUTDOWN MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING"

is the warning on the sign at our boardwalk.

As I re-read the words that greeted me at the beach

I felt as if GOD had written the words

"TO AVOID SHUTDOWN MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING"

as I got the message loud & clear.

If you & I & everyone else don't want to

SHUTDOWN~

Collapse

Fall apart

Breakdown

MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING~

"To PUT OFF your old self [completely discard your former nature],

which is being corrupted through deceitful desires..."*

That part of you that emerges in anger, frustration, bitterness, fear, anxiety,

condemnation and so much more

yet we are called to

MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING~

"...and be continually renewed

in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh, untarnished mental and spiritual attitude],

 and put on the new self [the regenerated and renewed nature],

created in GOD'S image, [godlike] in the righteousness and holiness of the

truth [living in a way that expresses to GOD

your gratitude for your salvation]. *(Ephesians 4:22-24 AMP)

TO AVOID SHUTDOWN~
