Perfect words for my year. I realize it's now April, but I did choose COURAGE & TRUST at the beginning, I've just been too busy and too preoccupied to post them until today. I feel I can nail them down now and stick with them for the year.
This is my year of change, which requires COURAGE from the Lord and TRUST in the Lord. This year, our daughter graduates . . . this year, I retire from teaching (homeschooling our only daughter) . . . this year, I discovered my body isn't going to cooperate with my idea to go out and get a new career . . . so, this year also means learning and doing new things to keep my body going and it means a "wait" for the right opportunity in terms of a new career.
It's tough, I can't deny that. God doesn't promise anything in this life will be easy, but He does promise that He will be with me through it and will allow exactly what is necessary for me. I praise the Lord that He is in charge of me! With His courage, I will go forward with complete trust in Him.
