As I write this, we stand on the edge of the old and the brink of a
new year. We know what the past has held: some things good, some things
far from good. If our faith is in the Lord, we know and give thanks and
praise to Him for bringing us through another year knowing that only
through His love and mercy and grace are we here today. We leave our
Yesterdays in the safekeeping of His faithfulness and reach forth in
trust and faith into the unseen Tomorrow. We know that He is already
there from Eternity to Everlasting and He sees and knows it all and has
a plan and purpose that will not and cannot fail. That plan incudes you
and it includes me. We are precious in His sight and we, our future and
our loved ones are held safely in His nail-scarred hands . We cannot
fall from the security of His Love. I am His and He is mine.
None of us can see what our future holds but
let us commit ourselves anew into HIs keeping
without fear, but in trust and serenity and FAITH.
We will not go into this new year alone. Our Lord Jesus will walk
through our valleys and climb our mountains and ford our streams and
rivers and oceans...WITH us. He will guide and strengthen and sustain us
all the way.
