I was wondering what my “Focus” was going to be for the new year. Then it kind of hit me. Perhaps this year I can stop trying as hard and simply start trusting. One of the areas I’ve been trying to work on is having true joy in my life. I know that through Jesus Christ my sins are forgiven and that does bring me joy, yet, my life doesn’t always show it. For some reason, I’ve been making a connection between joy (or the lack of joy) and feeling like I need to be trying. So, I’m going to try to allow myself to trust God rather than feeling like it all falls on me. Dave.
