As we enter a new year, consider the idea of using great reflective questions to chronicle God’s Providences to your family over this past year. This is a wonderful tool for writing down all that God has done in and through you and your family as a means of reminding us of God’s goodness and sovereignty in every aspect of life, which in turn provides us with strength and motivation to press on to know the Lord over this new year (Hosea 6:3). We like to store this in our annual photo album for keepsake.
Another great resource is the 10 Questions to Ask Yourself at the Beginning of A New Year. These are extremely beneficial for seeking to take time to stop, look up, and get your bearings for a new year. It is truly profitable to sit down with your spouse, friend, or accountability partner and write down your responses. How will you keep each other accountable this year?
Aaron and I just used both of these resources again last night as we did last year to prepare for the new year and feel more equipped to keep Christ central and continue to grow in our faith and service of Him this year.
“Consider your ways (Haggai 1:5)!” May we all strive to bring God further glory as we live out our days over this coming year!
