New Year, New Beginning, New Focus, Right Perspective
By: Mary Jean Marquez
Hello everyone! It's been a while since I last blogged, and I have been itching to get this one out after the year we've had in 2020. Let's do an overview: World wide Pandemic - with great loss of life, economic upheaval - with jobs and businesses lost, societal unrest - with great unnecessary violence, contentious election, media and political lawlessness - with our God given freedoms at stake, and so much more. Seems we had it all! I am relieved that we are at the end of this year with more clarity, wisdom and understanding; not only of what's occurring in this world, but at a personal level.
I extend my deepest condolences to all who suffered the loss of loved ones and or friends this year due to Covid. I pray peace and comfort within every heart. And, to those suffering the loss of jobs, and businesses causing financial distress, I pray for a God kind of breakthrough, and financial increase in the mighty name of Jesus. God bless us all. 🙏
We, as a nation and world, were side swiped, rolling us into an oblivion of confusion and chaos, with every single human being having no control, except to pray and fight fear off. We all together experienced the harshness of the situation, causing compassion and empathy to rise out of our hearts for one another. I believe many rose to the occasion with God's love.
