Here it is, the middle of January, and I’m just now picking my 2019 word. Let me explain why it took me a while to land on the right word. For some reason, I’m having a hard time getting started on lots of things this year. I’ve been asked to do a few things at church and my underwhelming answer has been, Meh…maybe.. Maybe I don't feel ready to launch into a new year and set new goals, it’s not like 2018 was my favorite year and I don’t’ want to see it go! I just know I’m off to a slow start and giving myself Grace to do exactly that.
It’s often in the darkest moments that we’re able to see our Savior most clearly; he loves to surprise us that way! Max put it this way: God is at his best when our lives are at their worst. Easter was more than just a moment in history; it was God’s biggest surprise - and the reason we have hope today.
