We are not alone

Few of us would have imagined that now, as 2020 comes to a close, we would not only still be dealing with the pandemic, but actually experiencing a resurgence in coronavirus infections. It's understandable that we are tired, frustrated, anxious and disheartened. 

The Bible reminds us that we are not alone. "Be strong and bold; ...because it is the Lord your God who goes before you. He will be with you; He will not fail you or forsake you."(Deuteronomy 31:6,8)
