Living a Gracious Life in 2021

January 2021

Living Graciously

As we bid adieu to 2020 and the lessons learned along the way, we welcome 2021 and all that will come our way! We pray that this will be a year filled with a spirit of Renewal and Revitalization. A year that will be filled with new hopes for the future, gratitude for the present, and a reliance on God to guide us along the way, as we seek to live out His expectations for our lives.

As we enter into our year of Renewal and Revitalization, we invite you to join us on this road to living a life with increased self awareness and the opportunity to increase our full potential in the Lord. In the coming months, join us as we take the challenge to be guided and inspired to live our best lives.

A spirit of Renewal and Revitalization requires change. Let this be the year that you make a positive change in your life and the lives of others. It’s not enough to profess your desires out loud, but Renewal and Revitalization is a step towards making a change on the inside first. It’s about loving your neighbors, honoring your mothers and fathers, increasing your faith, showing wisdom, being honest, showing gratitude, maintaining inner joy and peace, having hope, forgiving self and others, expressing kindness, being respectful, demonstrating love, modeling generosity, remaining humble, and staying optimistic. These are just some of the topics we’ll be discussing in the coming months on our journey to creating a better version of ourselves. Let this be the year we strive to live our most gracious lives and we start by embodying the spirit of Renewal and Revitalization.

A positive self transformation not only demonstrates a love for self, but a love for others, and most importantly, a love for God. How can we love God whom we cannot see, but not fully love self or others whom we can see? A willingness to show love, respect or honor is pleasing to God, for God is love. “And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.” 1 John 4:16 (NIV)
