I am reminded of a scripture in the Bible that says “Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning.”
New Years Eve ends at (mid) night. With the tick of a hand on the clock time moves forward as we pass from one year to the next. All that said, the old year ends at night and the morning of not only a New Day, but a New Year begins and joy can come into your life. With that tick 2011 became the past and 2012 became the future.
The worst thing a person can do is carry that past with all of its hurts, pains, and fears. Instead choose to look to the future. The book of Jeremiah says the “GOD has a plan for you that has a future and hope.”
You may feel down and out but GOD says you are up and in. Think on the good things of the LORD with what HE has blessed you with, not on what you don’t have.
Start the year out right
What is GOD speaking to you? What do you need to correct in your life?
Be blessed, Pastor D.
