New Year, New You:
Reflect & Grow for the New Year
Guest Author, Brittney Moses
It’s almost time to ring the bell, to call in the New Year, to sing, to say… Happy New Year!
Take this time to be refreshed in all the new possibilities of 2023 by giving God your “yes” this year.
Normalize deciding to step beyond your comfort zone and watch Him do…
“…immeasurably more than all [you] could ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within [you].” – Ephesians 3:20
New Year, Time for Reflection
Gather for Growth & Good Times
Take right now as the perfect time to reassess the past year and become intentional about how you want to move forward in the year ahead, especially when considering your mental, physical, and spiritual health, wellness, and overall lifestyle.
We are happy to share in a few reflection questions, as well as some Bible verses to help inspire just that!
10 Questions to reflect on from this past year:
- In what ways have I grown this year- mentally, spiritually, emotionally?
- What was one of the biggest life lessons I learned this year?
- What was my biggest time-waster this year that I need to set boundaries around?
- What brought me closer to God this year?
- What am I proud of this year?
- Who have been the biggest influences in my life this year, and why?
- What is an activity I did this year that I’d like to continue doing?

Thank you for our friend, here. We pray that you go with them in the year ahead and they rediscover your faithfulness and love for them.
