Ah yes, the dreaded New Year where we hope we will do better than the last. Perhaps we should be kinder to ourselves.
For every bad thing we say about ourselves, there likely is a good. Honestly, even the wicked had mothers who loved them.
I recently came across an interview I did for a local newspaper in 2012.
Who keeps such things you ask? Well not me personally, but the silly computer continually haunts me with stuff like this. It was the year after my husband died and I determined to write a book about my grief. (Writing is how I deal with pain. It’s the same as talking to a friend, but this way no one gets to interrupt you!)
The Pregnant Pause of Grief has comforted many, but since then I’ve published another half dozen books. Writing gives me a place to look at my life and recognize how far I’ve come.
This was my motto then and I find it is still my motto today.
I expect to conquer the entire alphabet in my life time with the help of my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Dare I ask you the same question? How far are you along your path to personal healing?
Have you met God and his son, the Lord Jesus Christ, along your path? I hope so.
For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life. (John 3:16, AMPC)
Prayer- Lord, thank you that you are faithful, not just day by day, but year by year into eternity. Amen.
