Solomon shares in Ecclesiastes 3:1 that there is a “time for everything and a time for every event under heaven.” And do you know what? I have a choice in the way I react to every event that comes my way. I choose to accept them as learning opportunities. After all, God isn’t going to allow anything to happen that He is not aware of. God doesn’t take coffee breaks: He is never absent. He will always give me the wisdom I need when I ask for it (James 1:5).
I’m going to embrace the New Year’s learning opportunities because I know God is in charge of every aspect of my life. Through the good and bad, He is there. Through the ups and downs, He is there. Through everything, I am surrounded by His presence. I seek Him all day long and want to follow Him, not my own yearnings. This year, no matter what happens, good, bad, happy, sad, peaceful or turbulent, I will seek out scripture and the wisdom it offers me. I will seek to strengthen my prayer life. I will Seek Jesus.
A heart full of blessings to you,
*It’s your year too . . . how will you use it?
