Happy new year! It’s natural this time of year to reflect back on the previous year, and to set some intentional goals and healthy habits as we start a new year. I hope your 2024 is off to a fantastic start.
January can be tough. The holidays are over, it’s cold, and it’s still getting dark so early! Too early, even for someone like me, who loves a good early-bird dinner special. Now that the Christmas lights are put away and we’re thrust back into our routines this winter, sometimes we’ve got to find ways to combat the darkness – with light.
The sun and stars are bright, sure, but they burn their own light. The moon, on the other hand, shines in the darkness as it reflects the light of the sun. That’s how I want to be! Not shining my own spotlight, but reflecting the light of the Son of God. That Light of the World combats so much more than literal darkness. How can we be intentional about reflecting Jesus in this new year?
One way is to encourage others, and one of the ways we can do that together daily is through scripture. LifeSongs posts a daily Uplifting Word on social media each day. Would you share that with someone you know? It’s a great way to start off 2024 uplifted, and to encourage others, too. Plus, as a bonus, every time you share the LifeSongs Uplifting Word this month, you’ll be entered for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the upcoming Zach Williams concert!
As we reflect on 2023, let’s reflect God’s light and love to those around us and encourage more in 2024!
