It tends to catch me by surprise each year-
how suddenly Christmas is over,
the carols are no longer heard and talk of income tax is in the air.
Although it might be easy to join the masses and stress over the lack
of energy, finances, health, relationships, etc,
that is not our real need.
No, beneath all of those concerns
is the need of our souls for His
Presence, His Peace and His Provision.
Without Him, we drift in emptiness
seeking to satisfy our aching souls
But, in truth, He is the One Who satisfies our every need
as we learn to depend upon Him.
So let’s start there first.
Ask Him to fill your soul with His Presence.
Ask Him to take control.
Ask Him to help you focus upon those things that matter most.
By doing that we’ll know that we are starting strong
no matter what happens.
Join me, won’t you, in taking that first step to start strong in 2020?
