As fast as they can text, millennials were sharing their concern and care for the world via social media. Influencers, celebrities, bloggers and podcasters came together to share one common message: stay inside and stay safe. War Cry talked to some influencers to see how they’re handling the quarantine, hear their words of encouragement and how they’re staying connected.

“During this season, I have really been tapping into encouraging others. When I’m able to share a positive or word of comfort to others it lifts their spirits and that lifts mine as well. I share a lot of inspirational and encouraging words and artwork on my Instagram account!” –Jena Holliday

“I’ve been giving myself a break and just taking it one day at a time. When I need a mental break, I’ll put on a great rom-com and needlepoint just to take my mind off it all. I’ve also been avoiding the news for the most part and finding happy articles and videos online. I think too much sadness can really affect you. I’m trying to find the positives and a big one is being able to spend more time with my husband. We’ve been playing a lot of board games, watching a ton of movies and going for long walks together to break up the day.” –Krista Robertson

“I’m home with my one-year old baby and my husband, who is now works from home. My daily routine hasn’t changed much, because I run my own business from home and I’ve always carried hand sanitizer with me everywhere. Nevertheless, We are trying to keep safe by washing our hands regularly, keeping to the quarantine rules, reach out to family and friends via video and phone calls, and offering food, water and prayers to the elderly and the less privileged around us.

In these trying times, our trust is in the Lord who made Heaven and Earth, my family and I are holding unto God’s word in Psalm 91:1-16, ‘To anyone reading this, stay home, stay safe and put your trust in God, for He never fails, neither will He forsake His people.’ We also meditate on verse 10 and 11 which says, ‘There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.’ To anyone reading this, stay home, stay safe and hold unto God’s word for He never fails, neither will He forsake His people.” –Chisom Felix

“This quarantine caught us all off guard, but it didn’t surprise God. He already saw the end–He wins. And if we are walking through this life with Him, then we win too. During these uncertain times, what gets me through is relying on what I know and what I know is that God loves us and is protecting His people. He told us in His word that fear is a lie, so I choose to operate in faith and not walk in fear through this pandemic.” –Paige Taylor
