Dear Christian Sisters,
Happy New Year! I pray you are having a worship-filled New Year, no matter your circumstances. When you draw near to God, He will draw near to You (James 4:8a)—making Him easier to hear.
Trust me in this, sister! I spent most of 2018 drawing near to God despite difficulties, and the result was hearing Him clearly so that I could more easily follow Him rather than fix everything myself. Fixing is a lot of work. Following Him is much easier.
And His plan is always better than mine!
It was amazing. So amazing that I wrote about it in my upcoming book, ReTested: The Story of a Post-Abortive Woman Called to Change the Conversation.
I finally learned how to focus on God and worship Him in all circumstances, and the peace that I felt was wonderful.
I had far less stress than I would have if I had focused on the problems rather than focusing on God through worship, prayer, and His Word.
So, I encourage you to make worship your #1 New Year’s Resolution—it’s never too late to start.
