In the midst of the virus and the riots and the yelling and the division and the overall negativity that we see on our screens everyday, it’s easy to despair.

To think that it’s not going to get any better.

To believe that these wounds won’t heal.

To get trapped in the cycle of fear.

To shrug your shoulders and give up on the world.

But please don’t give up yet.

There is still reason for hope.

There is still purpose to be found.

There is still love to be shared.

There is still laughter to be heard.

Whatever happens in the coming days, please know that the best is yet to come.

That God has a plan for your life.

And that we all have a part to play in making our corner of the world a better place.
