I have to tell you, I’m not sorry to see the old year limp away: it wasn’t very kind. Yet, as I stand at this point in time, with one foot at the ready to step over the threshold into the New Year, I am able to recognize God’s hand at work. For my family and myself: as well as many of you, this has been a year of loss and grief, pain and anguish, and as recently as Christmas day…incredible fear. There were times I wondered if God honestly had a handle of things. It has also been a year of great blessings and miracles.
Yes, it’s that time of year again: time to step into a new, and uncertain year. Not one of us knows what our future holds. Oh we may have plans made, and think that we have our future mapped out, but then life happens. Surprise! Thankfully, while we may not know what this New Year may bring for us, we can know with certainty that our future rests in God’s all-powerful hands. Does He have a handle on things? Yes!
