There is turmoil in the world and country. We won’t be able to stop it completely ever. Life has its ups and downs and the word of God says that He sends rain on the just and unjust. That is everyone.
Matthew 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
I realize that there are some universities and colleges are trying to help the students cope by giving them coloring books, puppies to pet and Play-doh to knead to help them calm down. I think that is a direction that is immature in my opinion and it may be working but we have something that is time tested and sure that does the same thing which is to pray for strength, protection and help and to read God’s word. It is to come together and love one another in kindness.
Something we could do for our well-being and our comfort is to do our crafts not only to calm down but to help people. During WWI and WWII the women and children would knit for their husbands, fathers and for anyone who needed it. They made socks, hats and items to stay warm. It was a way to cope with all that they were going through. We are going through this and in the future it may be worse as we get closer to the time Jesus comes back and makes everything right.
Yarn is very soft and comforting to just even touch. I am sure it will help you and help others. People are making Christmas gifts right now and making charity items. This is also very important for us to do. You spend hours as you make something and think about that person. Even if you don’t know who it will be, you can pray for them. Prayer does work and helps and giving is a wonderful therapy as well. God seems to know exactly what we need to help us us in all situations.
2 Corinthians 1:3 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
2 Corinthians 1:4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
