Dr. Jim provides tips about how to deal with disappointments and expectations. Whatever life throw at us, we should learn to hold on to God’s promises to us in this New Year, with all the effects of the pandemic and stress creeping into our lives.
A Very Happy New Year To You!
The old year rapidly wound down and another New Year has just burst onto the scene. This event often floods our mind with a mixture of disappointment and expectations. What do you hear when someone says ‘Happy New Year’ to you?
Another year has come and gone and the expectation for a new beginning starts right away. Some singles might feel lost or even discouraged with high expectations for New Year’s Resolutions, changing of habits, pursuing new plans and goals, and/or the challenges of looking for a mate. The good news is that by allowing God to work on us, we’ll be able to start the New Year with confidence of a better outcome for our plans (even if it doesn’t always go the way we planned or desired). We should hand over our heart’s desires to God in the hopes for a better future and a more fulfilled life.
