“I used to think that if I could plow through whatever obstacle I faced, I would be able to resume my normal life,” writes Julia Attaway of New York City. “But this year I realized there was another way of looking at things.” In the midst of an extremely difficult series of family crises, the phrase “Abide in Me” began to take on new meaning. Instead of pushing against the rough stuff, Julia focused on simply moving toward God. This attitude had a huge impact on her faith. “My prayers shifted from ‘Make this problem go away!' to ‘Show me what I need to see and how to draw closer to You!' In that sense, it was a fruitful and wonderful year.”
