This week’s word prompt is: reflect
This is a pretty good word to think about as 2013 ends and we start looking forward and thinking about 2014. Time to reflect on the year, the good and the bad. This year definitely had its share of both. Yet somehow I’m still standing (or actually, right now, I’m sitting), but you know what I mean…I’m still here. I haven’t jumped off a building or fallen into the pits of despair, although there have been times I’ve forgotten that I’m covered.
Covered in God’s Grace, that is. Sometimes I’ve forgotten that He is here, with me, 24/7 and that He isn’t going to let me jump or fall too far. He loves me, in spite of all my defects of character. Or maybe He loves me despite my defects of character.
So when I reflect upon 2013, I see many times when I needed to get weak enough to hit the floor on my knees and pray. And, each and every time I needed Him, God has been there. He has carried me through this year. He’s going to be here with me through 2014, too.
What an incredible Gift that is.
