January 1, 2014… I wonder what this year will bring?
Our last two years have been, well, interesting… to put it mildly. However, God has used these past two years to teach Jason and I decades worth of lessons, all compiled into a short time span. I also know that we’ll forever look back at these two years as ones we never want to forget… especially as God brought a beautiful person into our lives and took her away. These past two years hold all of our memories with Ava and we will always hold them close to our heart.
But we look forward to this next year with anticipation, wondering what God is going to do and where He is going to lead us. A part of me feels like I’m waiting for something BIG to happen in our lives, but that could be just me trying to adjust to ‘normal’ living again. And if I were honest, if this were going to be the most boring year in my history, I would be Ok with that, although I have a feeling that’s not going to happen.
So looking forward, I’ve decided to just simplify… I’ve picked a verse that will guide me through this year and I know that WHATEVER God brings into our lives this year, it will be Ok. He will be faithful, I can guarantee it.
Here’s my verse and my new year’s resolution all in one…
He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God
Happy New Year!
