Pastor Adam mentioned in his last message that 2017 was our worst year – I told him that I would probably say “rough” as opposed to “worst”. I have seen rough years come to an end and I find that each of those years, I’ve leaned heavily on God. I’ve leaned on Him not just to help me through it but to carry me through it because I was too weak to carry myself.
This year, I pray that I learn to lean IN to God and not ON Him. I want to lean in and absorb His word and His plan. I want to be able to use it every day to get through the hard times and not just count on Him to carry me through. I pray this year for patience, understanding, strength and that we all learn to lean in – I pray that we each let God show us His way.
“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” Philippians 4:6
