As we begin this new year, don’t look back with what could have been for 2017 but instead look ahead and pray that God will help provide you with direction and possibly even courage to move through 2018. You may find that what is important to God sometimes is far different than what you or I would recognize as a priority in our own lives. Instead of going with one of the traditional resolutions about eating healthier or exercising more, take some time today and in the days ahead to pray that God would speak to you about what is on His heart. As we quiet ourselves, He will speak and maybe in a surprising way you had not expected.Perhaps your resolution will come while looking outward; for example, look for ways to serve others in 2018 or practice ways to become more aware of God’s presence and then share your testimony with others. I have a friend who doesn’t write a resolution but instead she asks God to give her words; words like “Boldness” or “Generous”. Perhaps yours may be “Stillness” or “Forgiving”. Words that will become your anthem throughout 2018, words to live by, words that create action or lack-thereof if busyness keeps you from hearing God. Whatever your plan as you go into this new year, I pray that 2018 bring your family an abundance of happiness, health, and time spent together.

I know that I have been holding onto so many fears and worries that are outside of my control that I want to be in control of, like the Thomas Fire going on for one example, or trying to keep my kids safe all day long but they still end up getting hurt somehow.
What if we lived our lives like a child and knew that our lives are secure in God’s hands? A child isn’t scared when they are in their parent’s presence.
