Let’s end the year praising and glorifying God!
This past weekend as our family read the account of Jesus’ birth in Luke 2 over our Christmas meal, I noticed something.
I couldn’t help but see how the shepherds did two things in this passage–seek and speak. They went out looking for Jesus, then they shared the good news with those around them, and they praised and glorified God.
So I encouraged my family to end the year with me “seeking and speaking! To look for God’s goodness woven into our year in the midst of the hard and the blessings. To praise Him for His faithfulness!
End of Year Reflection!
So I came up with this End of the Year Reflection challenge –Seek & Speak! I also have a free printable for you to download below!
Join me! It’s really simple!
- Seek!–Think through the past year and see all that He has done and is doing in your midst. You can look through pictures on your phone to jog your memory, read through journal entries, or whatever other way you record your activities from the year. In our family, we use the photo app on my computer that holds all of my pictures. Then I click on the slide option and it turns it into slides(nothing fancy). We connect it to the TV screen and we sit and reminisce. One year our boys made a slide show.
- Speak! As you think through the ways God showed up in your year, praise Him. Share with someone your discoveries of God’s goodness this week.
The reality is even when we don’t see it, God is at work. Even when we don’t understand it, we can trust His steadfast love never changes.
