(the last of the year, the first of a new one)
Every morning we enter a new day. Who knows what the day will bring?
Which is why he tells us not to be afraid. He has already gone ahead of us into the new day. He knows the way, what will happen, all we’ll need.
In the morning we can put our day in his hands. And let him bring into our day–into our year!–whatever he has for us.
And then, in the evening, we give it back to him. And trust him with all that happened in it.
“Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you.” DEUTERONOMY 31:8 (NLT)
Happy New Year!
