As I close out 2015, I’d like to share Dr. David Jeremiah’s commentary on reflection and hope.
“As we stand on the cusp of a new year, we have the
opportunity to pause and reflect on the past year.
Although loved ones sometimes sugarcoat their
feedback, we can find clarity in seeking God’s
perspective. He measures the waters on the earth and
knows every crevice of your soul. He sees and speaks truth.
If we don’t take time to do this, our years blur together
and we miss the story God is weaving in our lives. As
we review our year, seeking His clarity, we find growth
to celebrate and missed opportunities to mourn.
Reflecting on the past can strengthen us for the future
as we seek God’s vision and direction for the upcoming
year. Allow Him to lovingly lead you forward.”

“All day long have I toiled and striven; but now in the stillness of heart and in the clear light of Thine eternity, I would ponder the pattern my life has been weaving.” John Baillie
As we slip into 2016, reflect on 2015 and all its joys and disappointments. All were woven into your life – threads of growth and blessings.
Happy New Year! I’m going into it singing a new song. And as I close out 2015 in remembrance, I press onward in joy in 2016! I can’t wait to see what God has in store for me.
Blessings to you all!
