2020 was a hard year.  And it’s encouraging that many found hope and comfort in the Bible.  “The YouVersion Bible app has announced that Isaiah 41:10, was their Verse of the Year for 2020.  The Verse says – ‘Don’t be afraid for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.’ … No doubt, an appropriate Verse for this past year.  YouVersion says they didn’t pick it, but rather it was determined by the many sharings, book markings and highlights in 2020.
