God has given us measurements of time so we have some perspective on our lives. Think how hopeless we would feel if we were stuck in some stressful situation and thought it would never end. But God gives us a new morning, a new day, a new month, a new year, to start over again and again. With each new start we lift our voices heavenward, laying out our hopes and prayers. Then we wait "in expectation," as the psalmist said, to receive the gifts and blessings, and yes, challenges, God has planned for us!
He is the God of our past, present and future. He is a God of new things, He is a God of renewal and restoration, He is a God of refreshing.
Without Him our lives stretch out to a hopeless end, with Him we have the endless hope of a heavenly tomorrow.
Wishing you a very Happy and Blessed New Year!
Until Next Time
