Haha.... Truthfully, this is how I often live. I spend a lot of time reliving the past and, alternately, worrying about/planning the future. This morning my husband spoke about these words from Isaiah in the Old Testament.
“Forget about what’s happened;
don’t keep going over old history.
Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new.
It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it?
There it is! I’m making a road through the desert,
rivers in the badlands."
Most New Year's eve I reflect on the past year and look forward to a New Year. This year want to take seriously the words from Isaiah and forget about what's happened. I'm a little anxious about the New Year. So many things seem so uncertain. I pick a "word" for the New Year. I haven't picked one yet. Last year's word was "contentment". I feel I was/am pretty content. This year.... hmmmm.... I don't know yet. I want to live expectantly, to trust wholeheartedly, to take risks, to be bold, but there is a certain amount of fear.
So, what should my "word" be this year? What about your word?
