The ocean has always been a source of fascination to me. I love to stand at the shoreline and gaze with wonder at the vastness of the ocean.
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
As we stand on the threshold of a New Year, the vastness and uncertainties of a new year can cause apprehension. We don't know what changes the New Year holds for us. We do know that there will be joys along with trials. We know that life is precious and fragile. In our current times, we have seen that jobs and finances can fail.
But we can also be sure that God is for us. He sees and knows what is ahead for us and He alone can make every detail work out for our good. As we embrace a New Year, we can go forward in confidence and strength knowing our hope and future is secure in the Lord.
Happy New Year!
