Even as we’re attempting to make life count, to make a difference, or to move forward in new ways in this new year, we will still face challenges that can seem insurmountable. If that happens, remember you are not alone. In those moments, when you feel alone, I pray these words will encourage you.
As you look back over the past year, do you see patterns that need amending, habits that need rending, and do you find yourself defending your actions and attitudes? Are you longing for something different this year? If you want to move ahead, start over, and experience a year of victory, not defeat, then maybe this New Year’s Prayer will help to inspire you.
As Christmas draws near, may our hearts also draw closer to the One we celebrate. It’s all about Jesus. And despite the fears, the tears, and the challenges that invade our world daily, we can experience the joy and peace He came to bring.
