Today we begin a new year. We know not what tomorrow may bring forth and so we look with anticipation to the future.
We also look back on a year now finished with the hope that we have lived it to the glory of God. Knowing that we have most definately failed at times but that we have a God of forgiveness who allows us to learn from our mistakes. We have also had many victories won, many prayers answered, and many joys given.
But in this moment of hope for the future and reminiscence of the past, may we never forget to be thankful for this present moment. We would not be here today if not for an Almighty God reigning sovereign over all.
May we live each new day shining Christ's love and forgiveness all around us and may we remember that, "For me to live is Christ, but to die is gain." ~Philipians 1:21
This new year brings things that we know not of but that we can face with confidence, courage, and faith as David did before Goliath knowing that our God has already won the victory. What need we to fear?
Happy New Year!!!!
