2021 is over; here are my hopes and goals and prayers for 2022.
2020 is over, but i fear we aren't yet out of the woods; as such, i must continue to focus on Jesus and follow Him.
2019 is over, and as such i need to fix my eyes firmly on Jesus in 2020 and the ensuing decade.
2018 is over, and as much as I sometimes wish there was a reset button for 2019, God has given me everything I need to trust Him and walk with Him and grow closer to Him in the new year.
