I don't know about you, but I am ready to conclude 2020. I am looking forward to seeing it end. There has been so much loss, uncertainty, and upheaval in our daily lives.
However, I am thankful for the slower pace, a new position at work, and God's faithfulness through it all! I love the promise that "Jesus, the Anointed One, is always the same—yesterday, today, and forever." Hebrews 13:8 (The Message)
This "unprecedented year" went by so slowly and yet so quickly. I don't want to forget the lessons I learned in 2020.
I recently read this from Christine Caine on Facebook which a friend of mine had posted. Can we conclude this year and finish strong? We have 1 week left and I think this is a good challenge for us all. I want to finish 2020 strong, because, well, that was my word for this year.
As Advent makes way for the birth of our Savior, I pray that our hearts will be prepared for all that Jesus has for us during this Christmas season. As we conclude 2020, may we be willing to trust Him and have no fear of the future.
"So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord, your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 (New Living Translation)
This post was prompted by Kate Motaung's "Five Minute Friday," which she hosts on the Five Minute Friday website. Kate posts a single word each week and each blogger sets a timer for 5 minutes to write and then posts, with little editing. (Some weeks I have more trouble with that part than others.)
