And so here we are.
A brand new year. And along with it, that familiar sense of obligation to reflect on the past 12 months and determination to set and meet new goals, to curb bad habits, to start off on the right foot this time…
But maybe it’s time to ease up a little. I make overt plans, secret plans, simple plans, elaborate plans—but time and again, God shows me how unknowing and unseeing I am. If there’s anything I’ve taken comfort in the most within the past few months, it is the knowledge that He knows best, that my trials and tribulations only serve to make me stronger, wiser, more humble, and more compassionate.
And so here I am. Gonna stop trying so hard to create my own circumstances, and let them create me instead.
