Years ago, I was quarantined with a mysterious fever and deep cough. My husband took me to Urgent Care where it was clear I was not in my right mind. Delirious it seemed. What caused it?
Quickly, the medical staff assessed my situation and gave me a breathing treatment.
A long one.
At first, I thought what is the purpose of this? I can breathe fine. Then, it was clear I wasn’t breathing fine. Pure oxygen was needed to bring me back into my right mind.
My right mind.
My right mind.
What is that exactly?
What is my right mind?
When I left the Urgent Care facility, I was not feeling better physically, but my thoughts were clearer. My right mind was found through pure oxygen.
The oxygen had moved through my body supplying much needed nutrients to my cells so my body could fight the bacteria or virus.
And this was my thought process. Quarantined in Confusion?
My right mind is when I am in UNION with CHRIST for His purposes alone. Breathing pure oxygen was the answer. Breathing Him in and breathing only Him out so HE is all that is within me.
I find this union when I lay aside all that lays on me to distract, to detour, to destroy me. Quarantined in Christ?
The problem was a slow infection unaddressed became clothes of distraction that fit really well. Clearly I had taken a road to detour with a quarantine in confusion.
So, there I was under a heavy blanket of yuck searching Him out for answers and solutions as to why I got there and how to avoid it in the future.
When you are in the yuck zone you sleep, drink water and sleep some more.
And, HE brought it all back to HIMSELF and pure oxygen.
It must be pure..to clean, to clarify, to align.
What if the calling is so clear, so concise, so obvious and so narrow that you just cannot see it? Quarantine needs a purpose.
Those were my thoughts as I peeled off another layer of distraction, detour and destruction in hopes to avoid a future delirium. This quarantine was some years back.
But is this day so different? Covid crazy chaos causing conflict and incoherency. The mixture of faith and fret furthering our confused quarantine?
Have you been distracted from pure oxygen? When is the last time you had a pure thought?
Have you been derailed into depression designed to destroy? Oh I have and it’s been a definite detour that has required strategy. Quarantine in Christ.
I’m coming out slowly but surely with Gods help, the prayers of friends and a wake up call to a new courage.
Have you been quarantined into Christ or quarantined in confusion?
Are you coming out?
