2012: the year you were loved

December 31, 2012 at 1:54 pm Leave a comment

According to my facebook newsfeed and the posts on my favorite blogs – apparently New Year’s Eve is a perfect time to reflect on the last 365 days.

And label them.

“This was a hard year. This was a year of change. It was a great year. It was a year of sickness. It was a full year.”

Hey, I even got an email from WordPress with a report on “Your 2012 year in blogging.” (Great infographic, not-so-great year. But who cares? I barely wrote this year! That will change in 2013).

I don’t know what this year has held for you. But do you know that 2012 is the year you were loved? 

In your sufferings, you were held by the God who personally took on flesh and suffering and experienced all of it.

In your blessings, all good things came from His hand.

And when you forgot about Him, ignored Him, or simply had ordinary, mundane days with homework or wiping runny noses and forgetting about your laundry, again –

you were still loved more than you can imagine. 

God doesn’t sum up our days and label them like we do. He writes “LOVE” and “GRACE” and “REDEMPTION” over everything.

However you remember this year, know that it was 365 days where He never left your side.

And as we look into 2013,  know that each new day is going to be another one where He is right there with you.

Because 2013? That’s the year you were loved, too.
