Embracing Faith Through Inspiration

"But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord,

I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me."

-Micah 7:7


Many of us are eager to shut the door on this year, forget about all things 2020, and look ahead to 2021.


Regardless of how this year went for you, having hope for a better year ahead in 2021 is something that matters much and can benefit us all.


Hope is something that many of us lost in 2020, as the coronavirus pandemic spread worldwide, along with civil unrest and severe tensions among communities.


Now, as the coronavirus vaccine continues to be distributed throughout the United States and life begins to return back to normal, we wish that you share our hope for 2021.


Here are three ways that having hope for 2021 can benefit you:


1. Hope can inspire us to create better habits, take better care of ourselves, treat others more kindly, and make for a better world.

2. Hope will help many of us who experienced setbacks in 2020, take more of an active approach to life and develop a plan to achieve our goals.

3. Hope will help you keep going, as we navigate (hopefully) the final months of this awful pandemic.
