Other than getting well and trying to trust in God, I have no resolutions for the upcoming year. This year in particular has taught me that I’m better off if I don’t anticipate or have expectations. But that’s not meant in a negative way. One quote that struck me today was by Henri Nouwen, “If I trust deeply that today God is truly with me and holds me safe in a divine embrace, guiding every one of my steps I can let go of my anxious need to know how tomorrow will look or what will happen next week or next year. I can be fully where I am and pay attention to the many signs of God’s love within me and around me.” Each and every day I need to be aware of God’s loving presence so I can be a loving person. The other quote that I found particularly meaningful was, “If we allow the love of Christ to change our heart, then we can change the world.” – the late Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI
I Found God today in encouragement to trust in Him.
This quote was so meaningful to me! Having changed my job position to Perdiem, to stay home with my infant grandson, full-time, I often worry about finances. This quote helps me to have a new focus and trust! Thank you, Tammy! Have been praying for your speedy recovery! Much love, Denise.
Thank you Denise. Many new years blessings to you and your family!
