A New Year's tradition that my wife and I have done with another close couple, is to pray into the new year. Just after the clock strikes midnight, we spend a few moments thanking God for all the ways he had blessed us that year, pray for friends and family that come to mind, and then bring to Him special prayer requests that are on our hearts. One year for example, was for both of our daughters as they and her husbands were having difficulty conceiving.

Through the years it has been an amazing experience as we have seen many of our requests being answered. In many cases, they are completely different than what we were expecting. That one year when we prayed for our daughters, both had children that year.

At the end of our prayer time last year, Donna said she had a word come to her mind but had no idea what it meant. She said the word. That word? It was RESET

We chatted about this and pondered what a RESET could be and then got back to what we also do on New Year’s night; play Canasta well into the early morning. We play guys against girls and I was thinking that maybe the RESET for 2020 was that the guys would start winning more games. I was wrong in two areas! First, we did end up losing again and secondly, after that, we were not even able to play Canasta because they were not in our “bubble” most of the year. In 2020 there could not be a better word to describe what has happened in the world. I’ve even heard that word come from the Canadian Prime Minister in a recent speech

The pandemic has touched everyone in the world. It has forced everyone to RESET what was considered normal. It has impacted my family and has changed the way we have done things in the past. It has forced us to re-think and RESET how we do things now, and I’m sure will impact what we do in the future. What it has also done, is that it has forced us to re-think or RESET our priorities. As we approach Christmas, one of those priorities has been our Christmas celebration. For many, including ourselves, the focus has shifted away from focusing on the real meaning of the Christmas holiday to a view that focuses on what happens on that day as opposed to the real meaning of that day. Christmas decorations, Santa, reindeer and presents have shifted our focus away from the initial purpose of the celebration, which is Christ’s birth. Where God became human to give us HOPE. A Christmas decoration on a wall in our house says, “Oh Come Let Us Adore Him”. I wonder if this is also the purpose behind the word RESET. We have drifted so far away from Christmas’ true meaning and if we spent some time focused on that, there would be HOPE which so many people seem to be looking for. May this season be your RESET, give you PEACE and bring HOPE as we look forward to a New Year. I wonder what the next word will be when we roll into 2021? Stay tuned.
