Sony’s Thoughts: Just Thinking

Today I begin yet another year on this earth. When I think about it, it doesn’t seem like long ago that I was a teenager yet a lot of years and miles have gone by since then. Birthdays are a great time to look back at life and thank God where He brought me from and where He’s taking me. There have been a lot of ups and downs through the years but, through it all, He never let go of my hand.

I don’t know where all God will take me this next year–what valleys I may have to go through or what mountains I may have to climb but I know that, through it all, I can trust in God and He will continue to lead me until I finally reach my Home.

I hope you are continuing to move toward God and to hold His hand throughout each day. He didn’t bring us out this far to take us back again. He brought us out to lead us into the Promised Land if we will but follow.
