I know I sound like my parents, but good grief is time flying! Y2K seems like just a few years ago, and here we are a decade later, still alive and living outside of bomb shelters. I was told once that as soon as we hit 21 time starts to go so quickly we can't keep up, and I've found it to be eerily true.
So what's ahead for 2010? I have absolutely no idea! But one thing I've learned in the past couple of years in particular is that I don't have to know. And I don't have to worry. Because my life, present and future, is in the Lord's hands, and those hands are more capable than any I'll ever know.
I'm quite sure it won't be a year of all sunshine and roses. I'm sure there will be plenty of bumps along the way. But as long as I know He's there with me, leading me by the hand and providing me with the strength and grace I need to travel down the path He's chosen for me, I'm good.
So as we enter this new year, step into it with faith. If you know Jesus Christ as your Savior you have the assurance of His perfect guidance, and no matter what comes your way, He will work it all out to the good of those who love Him.
And if you don't know Him, there's no better time than the fresh start of a new year to consider it. And there's no better way to spend a year than getting acquainted with the One who knows you better than you know yourself.
Wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed new year!
