2 Corinthians 12:9-10 NIV
9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

When we look back at 2020, will we be able to say, “for the sake of Christ, I am content”?  Saying it’s been a tough year does not do justice to the challenges we faced. Sickness, loss of livelihood, injustice, division, and civil unrest took all the oxygen from the year. However, I also saw families come together and intentionally set out to emerge from the year better than they started it. I saw men realign their priorities with God and family. For many, quarantine brought a new sense of what was really important. I personally experienced my life pivot with God’s call into ministry as a counselor. Yes 2020 sucked, but if you look you can see where God is with us and working for our good. For that, I am content, for the sake of Christ. 

Exodus 15:2 NIV
2 “The Lord is my strength and my defense[a];
    he has become my salvation.
He is my God, and I will praise him,
    my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
