A new year is upon us!
And I wonder where 2013 has gone....
2013 brought many changes, trials, blessings, times of crying and of laughter.
Looking back I have seen the hand of God in more than one situation and I am blessed....
But still in my humanness, standing on the brink of 2014; I will admit that I am somewhat scared...maybe confused or afraid of the possible changes that may come.
Change is hard, I will be the first to admit. But change can often make us stronger. Maybe it painfully breaks us first, and then molds us into a new being...or just provides stability to what we already are.
But however we feel does not change the obvious of an unknown future...
With that I am glad of the promise that I can cling to:
I don't know about tomorrow...
BUT I KNOW WHO HOLDS TOMORROW
I KNOW WHO HOLDS MY HAND!
"Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows." (Matt 10:29-31 KJV)
"So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble." (Matt 6:34 AMP)
And though I struggle with worrying about the unknown, I remind myself of the God that I serve. He knows tomorrow and He is there to walk me through! And for that, I am truly thankful. I can't imagine how life would be without a loving God by my side.
With that I leave a final verse:
"Casting all your care upon him, for he careth for you" (1 Peter 5:7 KJV)
