With these uncertain and scary times for many, due to the coronavirus pandemic, some celebrities are choosing to rely on their Christian faith and the Bible to encourage their followers and get them through these challenging times, like these 5 celebrity moms.
1. Candace Cameron Bure – Fuller House actress, Candace Cameron Bure, has always been very vocal about her Chrisitan faith. She shared a Bible verse from 2 Chronicles 7:12-16 on her Instagram page and read from the CSB version of the Bible, ” 12 Then the Lord appeared to Solomon at night and said to him: I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for myself as a temple of sacrifice. 13 If I shut the sky so there is no rain, or if I command the grasshopper to consume the land, or if I send pestilence on my people, 14 and my people, who bear my name, humble themselves, pray and seek my face, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.15 My eyes will now be open and my ears attentive to prayer from this place.16 And I have now chosen and consecrated this temple so that my name may be there forever; my eyes and my heart will be there at all times.”
2. Kourtney Kardashian – Reality star, Kourtney Kardashian, shared a Bible scripture on her Instagram stories and circled a message that said, “Pay attention children.” The highlighted passage from 2 Chronicles 7:13, GNT translation, read, “Whenever I hold back the rain or send locusts to eat up the crops or send an epidemic on my people, if they pray to me and repent and turn away from the evil they have been doing, then I will hear them in heaven, forgive their sins and make their land prosperous again.”
3. Melissa Joan Hart – Melissa Joan Hart shared a scripture to ease people’s worries, quoting from Matthew 6: 27-34, NIV version. “27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]? 28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
4. Elisabeth Hasselbeck – Former The View Host, Elisabeth Hasselbeck talked about her “journey jars” on Instagram (notes about the hard hikes, the valleys, and what was learned along the way. What our days might have looked like… what surprised us. How we pushed through. where we saw God in it all…) “I contemplated what name I would give it on the jar. Ultimately we all keep trying to find a name to make ourselves feel more comfort. No matter what name I gave this jar, it was not going to bring me more comfort about this journey together. There is only one name that does that: God,” she said. She ended her post by saying we will, as Psalm 22 points out, tell the generations about our God. And trust even though we cannot see. Psalm 22:29-31 NIV version says, “All the rich of the earth will feast and worship; all who go down to the dust will kneel before him— those who cannot keep themselves alive. 30 Posterity will serve him; future generations will be told about the Lord. 31 They will proclaim his righteousness, declaring to a people yet unborn: He has done it!”
5. Sherri Shepherd – Actress and comedienne, Sherri Shepherd, is another celebrity that’s never been shy about talking about her Christian faith, as evidenced by the Scripture she quoted from Isaiah 26:20 to encourage her followers. Isaiah 26:20, CEB version says, “Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut your doors behind you. Take cover, for in a little while the fury will be over.”
