Your quote this morning from Jesus Calling really struck a cord with me. "Old ways" are so hard to let go of because so often I am already acting out in the "old way" before I realize that I am doing it. Many of my "old ways" have been held on to for so long that they have become THE WAY of acting/reacting. It is going to take God's help to LET GO of the old ways that I know do not work and to replace them with a new and better way.


Thanks for the inspiration! I am starting with 1 Timothy 6:6. Happy New Year to you, Toben, and the girls! May God continue to sustain you and fill your hearts with joy!
