“Umm…Deborah. We are still in November. Isn’t it too early to start preparing for 2021?”
It’s never too early to start preparing for something important – and I believe the start of a new decade is very important.
At the beginning of the year, God gave me a word on ‘rest.’ My mind went in a hundred different directions, and I thought, “What am I resting from/for?” However, as the year played out, I began to understand.
A few years ago, I had an unexpected upheaval in my life. I didn’t see it coming, and it blindsided me. It especially hurt and grieved me because it came from someone close. The individual apologized, but I couldn’t just bring myself to forgive.
Some days later, I went for a program – and the minister talked on forgiveness. There, in that program, I finally forgave and let go of the hurt. However, that situation made me take a decision I had been contemplating before the incidence – and that decision was going to involve a lot of money which I didn’t have at that time.
