In light of a difficult year, I felt compelled to reach out to you with some words of encouragement. Little did we know what was coming this year, or that none of us could have anticipated the extent of the hardships we would endure.
Some of us lost our jobs, some lost businesses, but most sadly, some lost their lives. My heart goes out to anyone that lost a loved one. I have prayed for you even though I don't know you.
Upon reflection, I wish to remain hopeful even when times are rough. Faith is the belief in things not seen, even in the hardest of times. Yes, it's hard. Things will get better, and I believe each of have lessons we have learned through all of this.
So I ask you today, to understand the end of this rough time is in sight. We have almost made it through...Let's live like everyday is our last, love fully and forgive completely. No matter the color of our skin, or the gender we are, GOD LOVES YOU! He feels every tear we shed, he knows what our greatest fears are, and he sees us...in all our humanity...he sees us. The good, bad and ugly of our human nature.
That love is unconditional. The true, endless love only GOD has!
Every country, every nation, every religion, every single person he holds in his hand. He calls for us to love one another in unity. Not division, or judgement, but the togetherness we were made for. They will know we are christians by our love! As the song says, and I want you to know YOU ARE LOVED! YOU ARE ACCEPTED! YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!
As we start the new year, let's remember that we are all called to LOVE ONE ANOTHER..
As we embrace this CHRISTmas...let us remember the true meaning.
Let us get back to the natural, loving spirits we were intended to be.
I continue to pray for HEALING FOR CORONAVIRUS, UNITY FOR MANKIND, FORGIVENESS FOR OTHERS that have wronged us, and COMPASSION for those HURTING IN THIS WORLD.
