A blessed new year to you and those who are near and dear to you.
And most of us already feel as if life is a table with 3 legs, instead of four. And sorting the bits and pieces out is all happening while you and I try to stabilize the table top.
Eeeks, not a circus act I signed up for.
But what I did sign up for was to follow Jesus. And to do it the way Jesus instructed us to do it:
"Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.”
Following Jesus is the 3rd directive in a trio of action steps.
The first two are: Deny yourself and take up your cross. Our stability in 2021 will be connected to these 3 things. So, let the Lord speak to you about where you’re at and maybe where you’re not. Getting each of these action steps in place could even help balance the teeter and totter of our 3 legged table.
In the meantime, the Psalmist wrote, “Let those who love your salvation say, ‘The Lord be magnified.’” Can you and I agree to do this more then we ever have in 2021?
Lift Jesus up. Tell others how God has been faithful to you. Let folks know you’re praying for them. Say, “God bless you,” from time to time to someone new.
Let’s stand in AWE of God in 2021~
In His love and mine,
