So here we are right on the edge between this year and the next. I love this time every year, but then again, I love living on the edge. I love the hope of the unknown and the sense of adventure that comes with the new year.
Someone once said that there are two things we can be certain of, death and taxes. That guy was a real pessimist, but he sort of has a point. We do know, in this world, the things we know for certain aren’t many and they aren’t always good. It’s the things of the spirit realm that are certain, and the hope of them entering our world that’s exciting.
The edge of the new year has a great view. From here, we can look back over the past year, and whether it’s been a particularly good one or a difficult one, we can see God’s hand in it, and if we look really hard, we can see His outline and direction for the year to come.
So, join me on the edge. Don’t be afraid to look. God is the God of the past and He is the God of the future. He has great adventures for us!
- Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
