The Year to Appreciate What You Have

Scrolling through Facebook, you never know what you will find. Every so often, though, you come across a post that really resonates with you, and this particular post really struck me:

“2020 is not the year to get everything you want. This is the year to appreciate everything you have.”

Wow. How true is this!??! I bet if you were to ask anyone about the year 2020, they would have plenty of negative things to say about this year as a whole. But how neat is this invitation to change our way of thinking and to appreciate the things that we maybe weren’t fully appreciating before!

One of the many things I personally was not appreciating was having slow evenings and enjoying the quietness. To be quite frank, I tend to avoid silence. Adoration is my absolute favorite form of prayer; however, I find myself avoiding it sometimes because I am nervous about what God will ask me to do next. How ridiculous this is! God has always provided, but I still tend to doubt Him and His plan.

2020 has been such a challenging year; however, it is the perfect opportunity for us to appreciate what we have and to appreciate His plan for us! Jesus, we trust in you!
