For the majority of us, 2020 has been an unqualified disaster. Between destroyed plans and thwarted opportunities, we’ve all experienced some degree of loss. Some have even experienced the loss of a loved one. ou may be looking warily towards 2021, hoping it will be better but afraid of what’s coming. As you put 2020 in hindsight, take this opportunity to ground yourself in the Lord. If what you’ve been doing isn’t consistent, it's time to choose a different approach.
It's been a year---a difficult, aggravating, mind-boggling year. As we enter the holidays, we are weary and wary. More of us will be facing empty chairs either because of loss or simply because we are isolated. I am praying for each of us to be surrounded with the steadiness and consistency of God's love as we enter the winter months. Let's take this final month of the year to fix our minds and hearts on Jesus. I can think of no better way to close this year and approach the next than to meditate on Jesus.
