Welcome to 2020! A new decade! A fresh start! I am thrilled to be entering into a new time period—one where I long to know God more, worry less, and seek first His kingdom.
I wish I could say starting 2020 has been a breeze, given we are only a handful of weeks into the new year. Sadly, I’ve already felt the crushing and crippling effects that anxiety so lovingly shares with us.
In God’s sovereign timing, I was trying to distract myself from the weight of the unknown by streaming a show on Netflix. Oddly enough, as my mind raced and my chest tightened, one of the characters referenced a verse in the Bible. I had to look up said verse, to make sure the show wasn’t inaccurate. I opened up my Bible app on my phone, and sure enough, this verse popped up.
Isn’t God kind? When I felt anxious, He used a TV show to draw me back to Him. I read, then reread this verse. My eyes got a little misty. God cares about us so much. He knows when we are feeling strung out or fearful, and He meets us in the fear.
This verse reminds me to focus on the next step alone. No need to worry about all the steps along the way—just the one coming up. I am so grateful that God equips us with truth, especially, when we need it most.
Enjoy this free winter print, and let it remind you that life should be lived one day at a time as we trust in Him along the way—whatever may come.
