When was the last time you engaged in a conversation that ended up going south? In the midst of so much polarization, it's easy to do these days. I'm slowly learning the importance of engaging in healthy dialogue, rather than entering into a heated debate.
At the end of 2019, I chose the word surrender as my focus for the coming year. Little did I know how much I would learn about letting go. I had just walked away from a job I deeply loved and entered into a season of grief.
Recently, a friend texted me out of the blue, an image of the verse below. It was from John 14 and said, "I am leaving you with a gift-peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don't be troubled or afraid." The timing was crazy because my bible was open to John Chapter 14 right then and there.
