Rename The Year

Looking at the year in retrospect we rename it.

"Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, 'Surely the LORD is in this place, and I did not know it.' And he was afraid and said, 'How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.' So early in the morning Jacob took the stone that he had put under his head and set it up for a pillar and poured oil on the top of it. He called the name of that place Bethel, but the name of the city was Luz at the first." - Genesis 28:16-19 ESV

We may have had a rock as a pillow this year. The rock was not a comfortable place to sleep but it was a grace provision and it was on the rock that we saw God's grace. I stack my discomfort up and make it into a monument. Then I pour oil on it.

This year was God's year. Easy and hard all rolled up into one. It was named something else by someone else but God was in it as far as we are concerned.
