Well Christmas is over and as I write this I am looking forward to the New year and the many challenges and changes we may face. Does it fill you with excitement or apprehension? For many it will be a case of doing the same things because it is comfortable and familiar, others will try to do new things take risks.
In all of our plans, expectations and even fears let’s keep hold of God, let faith anchor the soul to his unchanging nature, to the God of yesterday, today and our tomorrow’s. If we keep close to God in Christ then whatever challenges or changes we face, we face them with him and the wonderful thing about God is that he will always lead us to where he wants us to be.
Our lives are very precious to him and he promises to be with us always, and we can keep going with God if our faith is in him who is faithful. So as we are launched into a new year, renew you trust in him. As the hymn says, “I shall not fear the battle if thou art by my side, nor wander from the pathway if thou will be my guide” My prayer is that God will keep us, guide us lead us in the coming year.
