Well… It’s 2021!

This is what we’ve all been waiting for! But wait…. Do you feel any different? Does the world look any different? Mine doesn’t…

My oldest daughter turned 6 last month. She went to bed with great anticipation for the next day. She would be 6 years old. A new day, a new year, a new person. She thought she would wake up as tall as me! When she woke up on her birthday, I asked her, “Well, baby, do you feel any older?” She looked me in the eyes with much disappointment and said., “no… I feel the exact same.”

I feel like so many people were looking at 2021 as a change. They were hoping that leaving 2020 would leave that craziness behind us; that it would leave as quickly as it came. Of course, there is still time since we are only 2 weeks in… but let’s just remind ourselves that we can “change” as a person without the world changing. We can use the strength God built in us throughout the trials of last year and focus on the person He is growing us into. Let’s change our focus from the “year change” and focus on the personal changes that God has already started in each and every one of us.

Philippians 1:6 I am sure of this, that he who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Happy New Year, Friends!
