This year will be full of new experiences. The best way to take advantage of the adventures that this year will bring is to be present in the moment. It is easy to be so focused on the future that we miss what is right in front of us. As they say, take time to “smell the roses.” Live in the moment; take full advantage of this season of life. Be present in His Presence.
Cultivate Your Relationship with God
We are created to know our Creator. Our only purpose in life is to know God intimately. God sent His Son Jesus on a cross so that by His grace our sins could no longer keep us from fellowship with Him. The greatest way to honor the Lord is to seek Him first to get to know Him.
Have an Attitude of Gratitude
No matter what this coming year has in store, be sure to give thanks. It is not always easy, but it is God’s will that we “Rejoice always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances” (1 Thess. 5:16-18). Having a grateful heart leads to more joy and peace. Thanksgiving aligns us with God’s perspective because we are able to see our circumstances through His eyes.
It is going to be an awesome year. Remember, the Son shines in every season. May God bless you as you get to know Him more!
