Recently, I had the joy of joining "Grounded" with my dear friend, Mary Kassian, and I'm inviting you to join us for a few moments as well—so I’m including the link to the recording
A dear friend, who is a retired RN and who served in the medical field for more than four decades, called me to urge me not to leave our home. She stressed how that exposure to this quickly spreading virus could be life-threatening for LeRoy, and how easily I might bring germs back home to him. That confirmed what I was already thinking.
You don’t have to adopt a “spiritual focus” for the year in order to pursue God or cultivate a more intimate relationship with Him, but I’ve found that it helps to have a map that guides you toward a worthy goal. The yearly Scripture passage becomes my map and provides me with a course for the year. Setting the heart toward a certain destination will produce greater results than wandering aimlessly.
