It helps us see the world differently and gives us perspective on what God has done in our lives. You get to look back on the promises fulfilled.
Reflection gives you the strength to move forward in your faith.
We always like to tell parents, God deals with us in months and years. Not days and weeks. The change happens in our family’s over months and years. When we see things in seasons, it gives us fresh perspective. You can live in the days and the weeks but don’t dwell in those.
So this week we want to encourage you to take some time to reflect. Have a conversation with your spouse and ask:
What were the highlights of your 2019?
What were some good memories?
What were some bad memories?
Where has God given you joy, hope, and courage in your life?
This is also a great opportunity to reflect with your kids and help them remember some highlights of their year.
