As we near the end of the year, we reflect on ourselves; we think about things that have happened to us and others we know. Is there something you want to leave behind in this year? What about memories or people that you want to bring into the coming year? It's okay if you want to let people go, it's perfectly normal. Only you can decide what's best for you.
Remember, it’s a new year which means a fresh start! Think of it like one of those Choose Your Own Adventure books where you choose the path your character takes, but it’s called life and we don’t know what's going to happen. And that’s okay! If we knew what would happen before going into something, we might not ever commit to it.
What is important is that you grow from your experiences. Jesus’ invitation to accept him as our Lord and Savior contains no differences, restrictions,or limitations to all that decide to accept Him.
We are called to come as we are, with the promise of rest that Christ gives freely to those who answer His call.
Christ will provide for those who accept the invitation to grow stronger and flourish. As Christ calls ALL to Himself, only He, can, and will, remove any impurities and burdens that weigh heavy on our hearts.
