Going forward in 2021

Thank you, God, for bringing the following verses to my mind as we start another year of the year of our Lord: Isaiah 43:18-19 and Psalms 31:14-18.

I’m excited to start the year with the Jesus Always devotional by Sarah Young given to me by one of my daughters. I have also started The Five Minute Journal by Intelligent Change, given to me by my other daughter, which is also something I’m sinking into.

However, I’m still making my way through The Reservoir weekday devotional, brought forward by Chris Hall, president of Renovare, and finishing up my Chasing Vines Bible study by Beth Moore!

There are also a few others that I won’t mention for now, but clearly I will have no absence of spiritual content.

And I will need every ounce of it this year.

“Remember not the former things,

nor consider the things of old.

Behold, I am doing a new thing;

now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?

I will make a way in the wilderness

and rivers in the desert.

Isaiah 43:18-19

But I trust in you, O LORD;

I say, “You are my God.”

My times are in your hand;

rescue me from the hand of my enemies and from my persecutors!

Make your face shine on your servant;

save me in your steadfast love!

O LORD, let me not be put to shame,

for I call upon you;

let the wicked be put to shame;

let them go silently to Sheol.

Let the lying lips be mute,

which speak insolently against the righteous

in pride and contempt.

Psalms 31:14-18
