Walking Into 2020 with 20/20 Vision
- Written by Lon Lorton Lon Lorton
Question: “Where do you see yourself in 2020?” Answer: “How do I know? I don’t have 2020 vision.”
One thing I see in the new year are a lot of jokes and puns about good vision. Another thing I’m pretty sure of is that most all of us will have some wonderful days and some days when we’ll wish we never got out of bed.
2019 certainly had its share of trials and troubles for many of us. I’m having to remind myself that, although there have been some terribly difficult days, the good news is that God “never leaves not forsakes us.” That’s in the Bible. In 2019, I’ve learned from and leaned on those scriptures more than I ever have in my life.
Jesus told us that Satan’s goal is to keep us looking to our past, especially the rough places of our past, wanting us to lean on our guilt, fear, and insecurity to keep us from growing and living a full, joyful life. That’s a warning from Jesus. His promise, though, is that he has come to give us life more abundant than we can imagine, despite all the negative stuff going on around us.
