The last Monday of 2014 got me thinking about today’s word-of-the-week…
But the past contains some traps.
So last week I made a list for myself, sort of a set of cautions and reminders. I’ll share them and invite you to add your own guidance in the comments.
Reflect with a sense of gratitude.
Reflect without regret or self-criticism. View mistakes as opportunities to learn.
Reflect without demanding answers. God doesn’t work on a yearly calendar, so some stuff may still be in-progress It’s okay to not-know.
Reflect with hope, knowing Romans 8:28 is still one of God’s central promises.
Reflect with a sense of awe and wonder. You and the story you’re writing are part of God’s plan for the universe!
Reflect with humility. It’s not all about you.
Reflect with love.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
