May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.  – Romans 15:13

This is an unsettling season, full of so many unknowns.  We all face crises through the lens of our own unique personalities and life experiences – so there’s no one single “correct” response to all we are facing.  But there is one absolutely certain place to take our concerns:  To God and God’s Word.  God’s Word is full of comforting, encouraging, and stabilizing verses like this one.

Romans 15:13 is a lifeline for me, a secure anchor for my life in difficult moments.  Under normal circumstances we experience anxiety, and in extraordinary circumstances – like COVID 19 – it’s an even greater challenge to manage our racing thoughts, questions, concerns, and emotions.

I know I’m not the only one who is trying to keep his head above water at this time, so in this Generosity Gem I would like to make an offer to our James Company Community:  If you have a specific question/concern we can help you with, or if you just have something you want to share, email us at and one of our coach consultants will follow-up with you.

In the meantime, stay safe, be filled with hope, and know that you are not alone!
