Sony’s Thoughts: Happy New Year!
The year 2009 has officially ended, and 2010 has begun. I don’t know about you but I always look forward to seeing what each new year brings. No matter what the previous year held, a new year seems to symbolize a new beginning. It brings to memory the fact that “His mercies are new every morning.” This is true all the time but it seems to have special meaning as a new year breaks through.
As I ponder the past year, I see areas I’ve grown in and areas I’ve failed. I desire to succeed in those areas this year as I hope I have learned a few things along the way.
The one thing I know as I enter another year: God is still in control. I may not know the future but He does. Nothing is going to take Him by surprise so, as I take His hand and begin to walk this next trek with Him, I can rest assured that if I keep my eyes on Him and allow Him to hold my hand and guide me where He desires, I will be in the safest place possible, protected from every storm that comes and, because of that, I can face tomorrow full of expectation. Let’s continue on together as we journey to that land. Let’s encourage each other to keep pressing on because Home may be nearer than we could dare to dream.
