January is a l-o-n-g month. In the past, it was one of the hardest months for me to get through. I’m not a cold weather fan, and January is always cold unless you live in Florida or somewhere warm year-round. January is usually cloudy. And it’s always really tough financially (because we spent so much money in December for gifts.)
Anybody else struggle through January?
Well, if you do, I have great news. This is the last week of the longest month of the year!
We made it.
Keep on keepin’ on. Even if you’ve missed a few days, even if your resolutions have gone South and headed for Florida. Start again. It’s Monday. It’s a new week…almost a new month, but you still have a few days to renew what you resolved before February begins.
I don’t know about you, but it always helps me to know that:
- I can try again tomorrow.
- January only has 31 days–we don’t live in Narnia, a land of perpetual winter.
- God’s mercies are new every morning.
This week’s Bite of Bread focus is the faithfulness of God. Though thankfully the seasons change– He does not. Though we fail in our resolves; He will not. He keeps His promises. I hope you find comfort and renewed energy in this truth…everyday.
This week’s Bible Reading Plan:
Make time each day to spend some time with God. Pour yourself some coffee. Grab a journal. Write down these scriptures and what God is promising you through them. He is faithful.
ps. Monday should’ve been Lamentations 3:22-24!
