Here we are, again, starting out on a brand new year – we made it to 2020!  As we look ahead we can’t even imagine where our journey through this year might take us, but we can follow some good habits that will prepare us for anything that could happen.  When the blessings come, I want that grateful attitude that knows all good things come from my Heavenly Father.  (James 1:16-18)  And when the painful stuff shows up, I want a faithful attitude that leans into my Heavenly Father with total peace that He will see me through.  (1 Corinthians 10:12-13)  And I know that no matter what comes along, it will all work out for my good, because I do love God, and I have been called according to His purposes – and you’re right here with me in this same purposeful, loving relationship with our Heavenly Father!  (Romans 8:28)
 
I find that the more I take in His precious written Word, the better my attitude is and the more durable my faith is.  So I highly value my devotional reading and meditation time, both when I’m reading through this calendar and the other times I find myself meditating on God’s Word.  As I start out this new year, and new decade, I’m gonna read and meditate my way through the wisdom of Solomon in Proverbs, one more time.
 
And as I navigate the new year, and continue to read and meditate on God’s Word, I’m committed to applying what I find to the daily living that either I find or that finds me.  And my faith is that I’ll come to the end of one more year, twelve month from now, wiser and more settled in Him than I am now. 

Thanks for joining me!  It’s a really good journey, and I love having traveling companions!

Shalom,
