It’s the last month of 2019. The last year of this decade. But I don’t like to think of this as the last. I choose to focus on what’s ahead.
January is almost here! 2020 is almost here! A new month, a new year, AND a new decade!
Ahh, I love change. Simply redecorating a room, trying a new restaurant, or the start of a new school year, I just love it!
Each day has the potential for such amazing opportunities ahead. Every new day is a fresh start. God’s mercies are new every morning.
Although my morning routine may be similar from day to day, it’s about the attitude of my heart and mind as I look expectantly to what’s ahead with faith and excitement. Each day is filled with new possibilities and opportunities.
The past is the past. Be grateful, but don’t dwell there. What’s God got in store for today?
I plan to fully enjoy this last month of 2019. No differently than I plan to enjoy each day that’s ahead. Knowing God is faithful and will never leave me or forsake me, I don’t need to fear or worry about anything in the future. Instead, I embrace peace, confidence, joy, excitement, and positive anticipation.
This month will be filled with travel, time with family, work, wrapping up the school semester with my boys, worship, leisurely days, food, and the celebration of the birth of Jesus. It truly is a wonderful time of the year!
And the best is yet to come!
