Today I share the value of taking some time to review the year. I’m doing two sabbath days around Christmas and the New Year in 2021. The first is to help me review the way in which God has been active in my life in the year just gone. And the second will be to ask God to give me discernment and wisdom about the things he wants me to focus on in the year coming.

What do you find helps you to review your spiritual year? Do you take ‘sabbath’ days? If you do, what do you find helpful in making them meaningful?
