There’s value in reflection, learning from the past and making adjustments for the future from the lessons learned. And yes, I’d love to know what God has in store for me this coming year, but it’s probably better that He just shows me one step at a time. If I knew ahead of time, I’d probably worry and fret about it.
He knows what’s best for us, and He chooses to show us step by step, corner by corner. All He asks of us is to trust Him and walk by faith, following Him around each corner as He leads.
I always take some time at the end of the year to reflect on the past year and answer a few questions:
- What am I most thankful for?
- What has been hard, and how did I handle it? What did I learn from it?
- How have I grown in my relationship with God this past year?
- What’s one thing I’d love to see God do this coming year?
As we celebrate the beginning of another year, I’d love to hear what you are most thankful for this past year. An answer to prayer, spiritual growth, new relationships, new job, an unexpected blessing from Him.
One thing I’m thankful for is that my mom is now face to face with Jesus and she was able to celebrate Christmas and bring in the New Year in a way she’s never before experienced.
Happy New Year to all!
