We are not alone

It's a new year, but we continue to deal with the pandemic, seeing spikes in coronavirus infections across the globe. While we want to feel hopeful as vaccines are beginning to be administered in some parts of the world, we also recognize that we may feel 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)
