I’m joining the Five Minute Friday community with Kate Motaung…5 minutes, no rewriting, and a one word prompt…
This time of year invites us to reflect back over the past months before starting fresh with a new year.
I’ll be honest…some years I don’t want to look back or remember what the year held. I’d rather it slip out the door quietly while I look forward.
This could be one of those years. It. Was. Hard.
But, I find myself remembering anyway. The good times and the bad. And looking for God in both.
He was there in all of it. And that’s what I want to reflect on.
God’s presence in the time of trouble.
God’s comfort in the midst of turmoil.
God’s protection when I couldn’t see it.
Remembering He was there then reminds me that He is here now. And He will be here tomorrow. And next week. And next year.
Even when I can’t see His hand, He is at work.
Even when I can’t feel His presence, He is with me.
Every day. Every hour. Every minute.
Are you looking back over the year before the next one begins? Where can you see God was at work…even if you couldn’t see it at the time?
